Hi guys,

the current implementation does not give the user any indication if #openPort: 
was successful or not. I would like to change that but am not quite sure about 
the most useful implementation for everyone.

I came up with the following options:
- return true or false
- return self of nil
- raise an exception on failure (like #primitiveFailed)

Let me know what you think.

Have fun,
