Thanks for reminding me. I added this in following way:

Added new configuration option for identifying which network block
was used (id_str in wpa_supplicant.conf; included on
WPA_EVENT_CONNECT monitor event and as WPA_ID_STR environmental
variable in wpa_cli action scripts; in addition WPA_ID variable is
set to the current unique identifier that wpa_supplicant assigned
automatically for the network and that can be used with
GET_NETWORK/SET_NETWORK ctrl_iface commands).

Current id and id_str is also available from 'wpa_cli status' output if
these are needed outside the context of action scripts.
