That API seems unlikely to me. It seems far more likely that we'd see a 
QHeatSensor and some API to first enumerate the available heat sensors, 
and then get them. Or, perhaps, we'd see an even more generic sensor 
like QSimpleScalarSensor that could contain anything from a heat, a fan 
speed to a voltage. You'd still need API to enumerate and get them, of 
course. However, I'm not working on this, so don't rely on my answer :-)
