Sample project exhibiting bug

## Overview

In moving from X.Forms 1.3.1 to 1.3.2-pre2, there seems to be a regression in iOS with FontFamily(). Whereas the following attribute on something such as a label would work in XF for iOS in 1.3.1, it no longer changes the font in 1.3.2-pre2:

FontFamily = "Courier"

The regression does not seem to be present in Forms.Android. I have created a new Forms app from template, targeted Xamarin.Forms 1.3.2-pre2, and attempted to change the label font using the FontFamily attribute. This project has been attached to the report.

## Steps to reproduce

1. Download the sample project
2. Build and run on iOS

## Expected results

Font changes to Courier.

## Actual results

Font does not change

It seems like FontExtensions.ToUIFont(this Label) and FontExtensions.ToUIFont(this Element) do not run the same underlying code as FontExtensions.ToUIFont(this Font).  As a workaround in the short term until this is fixed, you can create a custom LabelRenderer and call

if (this.Element != null && this.Element.Font != null && this.Control != null)
    this.Control.Font = this.Element.Font.ToUIFont();
