    [WIP] Add DSL support for calling effectors in YAML

    Adds a new DSL function `$brooklyn:effector` that takes two parameters, a string with
the effector name and an optional map of the named effector arguments. Use in a blueprint
wherever you can substitute a `$brooklyn` function, like this:
      - "getData"
      - arg1: "value"
        arg2: 3.14159d
        arg3: $brooklyn:config("key")
    See #153 for a complementary mechanism to create effectors in YAML directly.
    ### Issues
    It is hard to determine when the effector will be executed, but lazy evaluation can be
effected by assigning the result of an `attributeWhenReady()` call to one of the effector
arguments. It may be useful to have a version of the function that explicitly waits until
some sensor has a specific value. Different predicates could be defined for start conditions,
or implicit or explicit latches could be used. It would also be interesting to allow the tasks
created when running an effector to be used in places like the `install.command` configuration
of a `VanillaSoftwareProcess` in place of the SSH command executing task. This would require
a version of the function that returned a `Task<?>` rather than a value directly, perhaps
via another new function like `$brooklyn:task()`?
    Further work is still required to complete this feature, including more tests and documentation.
