I'm afraid I don't think it's possible. :(   But please prove me wrong.
Anyone?

As a matter of fact I reported this feature lack as a wishlist bug to
the debian bug tracking system when migrating from waproamd to
wpasupplicant. Please see http://bugs.debian.org/287220 for that report.

Unless I'm wrong and wpasupplicant indeed already supports connecting to
unlisted networks my opinion is that adding the special case to connect to
anything when ssid="any" would be the clean and natural thing to do.
