Thanks for the kind words :)

Just out of curiosity, can ifupdown handle this?

ifup eth0 (or some other trigger)
netplugd is launched
netplugd triggers ifup eth0 as cable is in
wpa_supplicant is launched with -Dwired on eth0
wpa_cli triggers final ifup eth0

Just curios as I had a forum request for Gentoo to handle that and it took 
some time to get it working as all enterance points from daemons are net.eth0
