For what it's worth, the Dallas Semiconductor weather station is
even worse:  It doesn't put out any data unless you query it plus it
has no "smarts" to keep any historical data.  It's basically a
string of sensors along a long line.  We support that in Xastir but
it's a bit more of a pain than others 'cuz we have to poll it
regularly and keep track of the historical data ourselves.

So...  That said, the above info about the TE923W doesn't make it a
show-stopper, but it does make it slightly more difficult to
support.  Means more code yet.
