I would like to rewrite poet::monitor to be more like boost::optional, instead
of the current implementation which was built on top of poet::monitor_ptr,
mostly for historical reasons (it was convenient at the time). However, I
don't know when (or even if) I'll get around to actually doing that. Anyone
is welcome to use whatever parts of the libpoet interface or code they like
and incorporate it into their own submission though. I wouldn't mind at all.
