True, this is user unfriendly and highly valueable for us developers.
strace will tell so much more than just where the configuration file is

Not as part of the output, where I would consider it noise. However,
printing the information as part of "sensors --help" would be great,
agreed. I just added that (together with removing the default
configuration file locations list, and having only one default
configuration file, which sounds sufficent and saner).

Feel free to voice in and, why not, provide some code if you have other
good ideas like this one :)
