Sorry, I mean labels like:

Northbridge Temp
CPU Temp
Powersupply1 Temp

Etc, remote / local doesn't say much to the end user, as the user doesn't know 
where the adt7475 ic is located, nor where the remote temp diode will be, so 
the default temp1 temp2 labels will be as usefull as locale_temp and remote_temp.
