My plan-to-throw-one-away household-data logging system wot just grewed

Mqttrunner Introduction

Four years ago, in 2016 November, I slung together a few hundred lines of Python to do some logging of data from around the house. It was intended as a plan-to-throw-one-away effort for exploration before writing something a bit more general. As with all things temporary, it's continued in operation since and has grown a bit to about 10'000 lines of Python and 5000 lines of HTML, CSS, JavaScript, JSON, Rust, C/C++ and other eldritch horrors.

There are a few aspects of it which might be worth discussing so a brief overview to give some context seems a good way to start.
