Bug Description

It would be nice if we could select "auto" for which sensor is shown in the indicator. As is, I could have by CPU being displayed as running at an acceptable temperature, and not see that one of my harddrives was overheating, etc.

This sounds reasonable but at the moment I have almost no time to work on indicator-sensors - this could probably be developed quite easily as a separate plugin which simply watches the value of all the active sensors and sets the primary sensor to the one with the greatest value. If I get a change I'll try and put something together...

Added a new plugin in https://github.com/alexmurray/indicator-sensors/commit/4923925071c5dbadd00f63563a6a96f9b4b4905c called 'max' which creates a virtual sensor which displays the label, icon and value etc of the sensor with the highest reading at any one time. This can then be selected as the primary sensor to display in the indicator and it will always reflect the highest sensor's details.
