This kind of operation is not currently supported. If you would like to
have it added in future versions, please file a feature request to
bugzilla at http://hostap.epitest.fi/ with some reasoning on why this
functionality should be added into wpa_supplicant. Another, and actually
prefered, option would be to implement this yourself (e.g., by using
configuration entry without SSID to indicate 'any' SSID) and send a
patch to this mailing list.. ;-)
