Has anyone written a wpa_cli action script that can be used for those public
access points that require you to go through an https-based authentication
before allowing you access to the internet?

BTW, let me also agree with Paul Fox (pgf at brightstareng.com) that there
should be some way to pass information from /etc/wpa_supplicant.conf to the
wpa_cli action script.  I'd want to be able to write in my
wpa_supplicant.conf something like:

   network={
     ssid="Foobar"
     key_mgmt=NONE
     cli_arg1="https"
     cli_arg2="username"
     cli_arg3="password"
   }

   network={
     ssid="FooToto"
     key_mgmt=NONE
     cli_arg1="pptp"
     cli_arg2="pptp.server.name"
     cli_arg3="username"
     cli_arg4="password"
   }
