Instead of having passwords stored plain text in /etc/wpa_supplicant.conf
would it be possible to use a password command there, along the lines of

password="/usr/bin/pass name at email"
psk="/usr/bin/pass other at email"

The init scheme then takes care of operating wpa_supplicant as my
user, rather than root.
