Yes, this is helpful. Especially for archiving modern web pages.

I more like an alternative version of [C-c C-a u] version which not downloading
the file, just download the web page instead.

This option is not enabled by default or forced, The defcustom option will try
to find the command. It's just an option. Many Windows user also neither have
wget nor curl installed. That considering will ban lots of functionality. I did
an search in Org Mode source code, I found some items like org-feed.el which
using wget and curl. Like most Babel series, ob-plantuml.el etc, they all reply
on external stuff.

I have used org-board before, but it's just not perfect for my need (well,
personal experience just). There are some disadvantages, like complex operation,
too many steps to archive web page, many files (bad for Org directory backup)
etc. And wget or curl is bad for archive modern web pages. They are old for old
web pages.

The only disadvantage of my patch is that "monolith" is not in Emacs or Org Mode
built-in directly. Org Mode is an open source project, so it does not contains
not open source stuff, I agree. I don't think a line of code ~(executable-find
"monolith")~ is against this principle.

Best regards.
