AFAIK not. But I have been working on it for my MO display, but that is
in lcdproc 0.4.5

My hacked lcdclient reads the mobo temp. via /sysfs, and then sets the
fan speed powered via the MO display and LCDd.

I have 2 1-wire temperature sensors wired up, but so far have not yet
written the code to read them. But for a C-programmer it is quite easy:
just copy the current methods in the Server s/w and send the correct
bytes to the MO display (see the MO PDF manual).

When I get time I will port it to 0.5.x, finish it and submit it !!
