Thanks Ken!  Something to beat on is any possible variations on discovering
sensors.  The logic for sensor discovery gets more involved with every added
sensor, so is getting pretty complicated.

In addition to my operational weather station (n5kuk) I have a bench
test unit with a very original Dallas wind sensor and a Bray barometer.
I'll load the new firmware and see how it works when I get the chance.
