[aprssig] PCsensor's TEMPerHUM as WX = Possible?

Hello all,

I recently obtained a USB stick of that temperature & humidity type. But 
after inserting, it does not appear as a new virtual port (such as COM8, 
or ttyUSB3, or like, neither in Windows XP or in Linux). However, in 
Windows it did appear as HID-compliant (Human Interface Device), and it 
was possible to run its manufacturer's logging software that generates 
.TXT or .CVS files.

In Linux lsusb saw it as Bus 002 Device 002: ID 0c45:7402 Microdia 
TEMPerHUM Temperature & Humidity Sensor, while dmesg | grep tty did not 
report it at all.

Having in mind that APRS software usually listens a WX device on a 
serial port or like, I wonder if someone managed to have such kind of 
stick working something useful as a 'poor-men’s WX stn in APRS.

Regards,
