Yes, we plan to add erlang:monitor(port,#Port). There are no plans, that I
know of, to introduce an erlang:monitor/1.

Speaking of erlang:monitor, we have also been talking about adding a
erlang:monitor/3 which would as a third argument take the identifier that
you want to be sent back to the caller instead of the current reference. Is
that something which could be useful to anyone?
