Following a security audit of our app I need to prevent the user from pasting text into the text box used for passwords.

I've tried to clone the Entry control, but use a subclass of the UITextField so I can override its CanPerformAction method.

However all the bits I need to make this work have been marked internal in Xamarin.Forms renderers.
