I don't have anything against adding something like this if there is
enough interest on it and someone would really use it. This means
changing an event message from wpa_supplicant, so the accepted strings
would likely be quite limited in what is allowed (e.g., just
alpha-numeric characters and underscore; no spaces etc.).
