Code inspection: Make constructor in abstract class protected

It makes little sense to have the public modifier on an abstract class constructor. After all, an abstract class cannot be created directly – only via a derived instance. Consequently, it is only the derived classes for whom it makes sense to access the constructor in the first place. Hence, JetBrains Rider recommends that you make the constructor protected.
