I took a look at the OTP source as this seemed simple enough to implement;
the code was kind enough to remind me that one can call gen processes on
remote nodes. At that point any possibility of using the monotonic clock
breaks down.

The functionality *could* be restricted to local gen processes, but then
it's this one more crevasse people have to consider when working with the
gen behaviours OTP provides, so I don't see it flying as a PR.
