Monotonic clocks are generally easy to provide on all systems and are implicitely required by some of the library facilities anyway.
[ 2010-11-01 Daniel comments: ]
Paper n3128 addresses this issue by replacing monotonic_clock with steady_clock, which is mandatory.
[ 2010-11-13 Batavia meeting: ]
This is resolved by adopting n3191. The original resolution is preserved for reference:
Make monotonic clocks mandatory.
Strike 99 [time.clock.monotonic] p.2
The class monotonic_clock is conditionally supported.
Change 30.2.4 [thread.req.timing] p.2 accordingly
The member functions whose names end in _for take an argument that specifies a relative time. Implementations should use a monotonic clock to measure time for these functions.
[ Note: Implementations are not required to use a monotonic clock because such a clock may not be available. — end note ]
This is resolved by n3191.
