Hi List

A Gentoo user has quested this block being added to the example file


Note, you don't actually need to have the ssid= line, key_mgmt=NONE is 

This enables wpa_supplicant to connect to any unencrypted access point. A good 
thing to add as I myself didn't know that wpa_supplicant could do this.

This has also highlighted a bug. When this block is used, wpa_cli status does 
not report an ssid - just can empty string. Would be nice if it filled in the 
ssid of the AP.
