Comment(by beirdo):

  * I don't see why you'd want to force 2 decimal places on all
 temperatures.  That seems like overkill.  Perhaps one, but even that's
 overkill, really.

  * I'm not sure what you are trying to do here.  It makes no sense to me
 to mash the metric and non-metric together.  The system's setup to show
 one or the other, not both, and I seriously doubt many people would ever
 want both.

  * much of this is predicated on the changes in script-fixes-1.patch
  * The idea of failing gracefully on missing data is good.  I'll consider
 this, but the implementation leaves a lot to be desired
  * using printf in perl is not often needed, especially to print strings.

 Patches rejected.  I will look into making the scripts fail out more
 gracefully however.
