g-p-m doesn't do temperature monitoring. I have an open feature
enhancement bug open, but I'm not sure if it really belongs in the scope
of g-p-m.

Yes. There's work going on for a sort of g-p-m framework for embedded
devices (OLPC, OpenMoko type stuff) which will probably apply for PVR
boxes too. I did a talk about embedded devices at fosdem, and we might
actually have something concrete at the end of the summer. Check out
http://ohm.freedesktop.org/wiki/ for ideas we have so far.

Big note; you won't be using OHM on a laptop or desktop, session deamons
are much more suited for that. OHM will just be for embedded devices.
