[Mono-dev] System.Threading.Monitor.IsEntered? Will this be implemented?

I have a project in .NET 4.5 that utilizes Monitor.IsEntered to check if
there is still a lock on a particular reference. You can lock multiple times
by doing something like the following.

//..Do something..
//there is still a lock.

As a precaution, when an exception is thrown, I'll loop over MyLock with
Monitor.Exit until IsEnter() returns false. In some of my more complicated
Multi-threaded programs the reference and at times these can get locked
twice (Try to avoid this, but it happens).  For me, using Monitor.IsEntered
is an easy way to make sure everything gets cleaned up.

In Thread.cs, I found the following:

#if NET_4_5
    public static bool IsEntered (object obj)
        throw new NotImplementedException ();

Does anyone have a timeline when this might be implemented?
