For what it's worth, although that suggests you don't want sensor data
from heterogeneous hosts, but that's one of my application.
Specifically for out-of-band temperature data fed to ganglia, the ELOM,
ILOM, and Supermicro values can be translated to consistent names,
though I'm not currently doing that.

Just as well I asked, then, before trying to dive in!  I could probably
help out, given instructions for part of the job, if it will partition.

I'd initially have thought of trying to have host-specific sections in
the file, e.g. with the common `[<header name>]' style, but I doubt it
matters from a user point of view, so it would be a question of what's
easiest to program.
