Interesting point.. mine only has the 6 digit (7-segment) display, but 
I'm sure it's multiplexed (digit/segment)..

But, the mux rate is fairly high, compared to the "transition time" for 
the segments.  So maybe I can average over some (short) time...

What I want to do is see what the temperature dependence is.  (prompted 
by leaving the fob in the sun, and having the code rejected, presumably 
because it was "slightly ahead")
