thank you very much for your patch :) Unfortunatly, it does break
backwards compatibility, because - after upgrading - some RRD files may
be names differently.

I suggest to implement a new configuration option "UseLabels". It
defaults to "false" to now change the default behavior and when enabled
uses the labels defined in the lm_sensors config.

Does that sound reasonable?
