[forms-devel] Making the Effect constructor protected

Hello Forms people,

As it stands now, it is impossible to create a cross-platform Effect in a PCL. To enable this, I propose we make the Xamarin.Forms.Effect constructor `protected` instead of `internal`.

I have already tried it and found it to work great, and I can’t think of any way this could break any existing code. I already submitted a PR, https://github.com/xamarin/Xamarin.Forms/pull/178 , but was told to discuss here first.
