Gentoo's baselayout-1.11.12-r1 (currently ~ARCH - means unstable but
available) supports this
config_essid=( "192.168.0.2/24" )
routes_essid=( "default via 192.168.0.1" )
dns_servers_essid=( "192.168.0.1" "192.168.0.20" )
config_anotheressid=( "dhcp" )
The only downside is that you need to use Gentoo!
