I wondered if the ups parameters could be read from a configuration file by
upsc and NUT-monitor (the python interface), maybe even upsmon.

I can of couse create wrappers or scripts that will work around this but I'm
curious if someone finds this useful. I only have one UPS and when I want
to see its status, I must provide the same values, so I'm searching for way
to avoid this.

The security should not be an issue if we only read the UPS status, correct?
