Please elaborate on the format or layout of the control configuration file.
Please elaborate on the mechanism planned to import it into code?  Y'all

Please elaborate on how the control program will execute it's "pluggable"
Please elaborate on how the fans will be controlled?  Will that be as a
group per system or independently per zone?
  -- What is a zone?
