exactly.  I'm not sure how fedora handles this, but the debian package
for wpa_supplicant includes a startup rc script that runs before
interfaces are brought up by ifup/ifconfig.

Can't help with that, but then again I haven't tried to use it (although
I might in the future as I want to fiddle with DHCP preferences when in
the vicinity of >1 configured networks and the "wrong" one ends up being
selected by wpa_supplicant).  In other words, you probably don't have to
worry about that.
