Sounds similar to thinkfan for Thinkpads, some questions:
[...]  can we get a generic daemon that works for all laptops?

Would be nice if d-i could install and configure that daemon.

This would be ideal indeed. That would be wonderful if fancontrol would work on as much hardware as possible and configure itself depending on hardware. The upstream developers probably need to e-sit together and talk.

For the time being, macfanctld works wonderfully on Macbooks. You can customize it, but you don't have to: just install it and the average sensor temperature drops from ~80C to ~50C. So I'm rather inclined to upload it, until a more generic solution is implemented.

Kind regards, Thibaut.
