Sample App

There appears to be inconsistent Xamarin.Forms.Button behavior between the Android and iOS.

Disabling a Forms Button on Android does not gray the text color, whereas it does in Forms for iOS and also in both NonForms iOS & Android.

Because of this bug, you are able to adjust the Text Color of a Disabled button in Forms for Android.  Which in turn lead to Customers requesting the ability to adjust Disabled text colors in Forms for iOS  (See my private note below)

**Steps to Reproduce:**
See image - https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/62849286/DisabledButtonTextColor/BugImage.png

Run the attached sample solution which includes the following projects:
- Forms.Android (DisabledButtonTextColor.Droid) *BUG HERE*
- Forms.iOS (DisabledButtonTextColor.iOS)
- NonForms.Android
- NonForms.iOS

Solution attached above, but also hosted here - https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/62849286/DisabledButtonTextColor/DisabledButtonTextColor.zip

**Actual Results:**
When running the Android Forms project, the button is not grayed when disabled.

**Expected Results:**
Android Forms buttons to gray out just as it does in Forms.iOS and NonForms Android & iOS
