I think we should use it as a chance to improve it. The nesting does not do anyone any favors, tcpdump applies to all interface type, so a single level "monitor interface $intf" command is going to be easier to use.

run monitor interface $intf [traffic ...]

Actually, there are already run monitor traffic interface $intf commands and they work fine in 1.2.3.
