Actually I have been thinking about using the annotating of sensors.conf file 
myself in the past, but I thought sqlite would be easier to use, esp. on the 
web-side. Since with sensors4mobo we kinda get the web-side for free, and I 
also _really_ like the idea of the database being a dir of textfiles with one 
file per motherboard allowing for easy tinkering / experimenting by end users, 
I think it might be a good idea to go with the dir with one textfile per mobo.

But less discuss this further tomorrow at our (face to face) meeting. Jean, any 
thoughts / preferences on this?




Ed, I'm really glad you've stepped forward with this, it could really be a 
great help!
