Raspberry Pi Core Temperature (SSH DataSource)

I was recently attempting to use a Raspberry Pi 4 as a streaming/ display mechanism for 1080p security camera footage - when I noticed a little temperature gauge flashing at the top of the display.

Gee, I thought, it would sure be swell if: a) I knew what that meant, and 2.) I had some visibility into the temperature of this Pi, so I don't burn yet another hole in my workbench.

Thus was born RaspberryPi_CoreTemperature, an SSH-based datasource that uses the VideoCore General Command (vcgencmd) to monitor the core temperature of a Raspberry Pi. This module was developed on Buster, the command is also present in previous builds of Raspbian.
