Addresses DE-20

The library component monotonic_clock is conditionally supported, but no compile-time flag exists that allows user-code to query its existence. Further-on there exist no portable means to simulate such a query. (To do so, user code would be required to add types to namespace std::chrono.)

Proposed resolution:

Provide a compile-time flag (preferably a macro) that can be used to query the existence of monotonic_clock.
