d8 compiler support for Xamarin.Android
Xamarin.Android as of b84de80 (which should be in d15-5) makes it possible to alter Dex tool path and arguments enough to switch to new D8 dex compiler.
It is simply done by setting MSBuild properties: DxJarPath and DxExtraArguments (the latter is new in d15-5, so it won't be usable in d15-4 or earlier).
There will be a NuGet package that you can just install and add to your Android application project.
