``Usage Attribute: 194 Temperature_Celsius'' is confusing to parse

Description

There's probably too much history now, but now I'll be able
to say, "I tried and it was rejected." Folks around my work
place don't like the transcribed message because they think
this means "381 deg. F." If there were a way to tell
smartd to print, say:

Usage Attribute 194 (Temperature_Celsius): changed from....

instead, then my internal clients would have a more difficult
time misunderstanding the meaning. Maybe the:

--rephrase-attribute

option?

Simply add '-I 194' and e.g. '-W 2' to smartd.conf.

This replaces 'Usage Attribute ... changed ...' by messages like
'... Temperature changed +2 Celsius to 29 Celsius (Min/Max? 23/38)'.

Workaround: Use -W directive to track temperature.
