[maemo-users] network priority and autoreconnect (OS2008)

I am wondering if this is even possible, but is there a way to set up
priorities (as in wpa_supplicant.conf, for example) for the different
networking connections (including tethered BT)?  I am getting really sick
of having to manually reconnect each connection.
My personal setup:
Home network: visible SSID, WPA-PSK, reconnects automatically
Work network: hidden SSID, WPA-PEAP/MS-CHAPv2, does not reconnect
Phone network: HSDPA via BT (AT&T), does not connect automatically

The biggest problem for me is that if I am connected to my phone (say, on
my commute...) it keeps the phone connection even if the Home wireless
network is available.  Same is true of the work network, although the work
network never autoconnects.  The real problem here is it drains my phone
battery unnecessarily when a WLAN is available.

I have no problem editing configuration files by hand, but is this even
possible?  It is really a source of irritation for me.

I also would rather not _ever_ be prompted to set up a new network - I will
browse for one when I want to add something to my preferred network list.

Any help greatly appreciated.
