yeah I forgot to elaborate that in my last mail. The problem of dynamic / not
explicitly addressable wifi interface names in the network config remains.

The best solution I can think of is fixing the wifi ifnames using "option
ifname" in the wifi-iface sections (which causes some very interesting effects
in my tests when not applied to *all* wifi-ifaces) and then using those fixes
names in /etc/config/network.

The other alternative I see would be a hypothetical new notation comparable to
the existing alias notation that resolves ifnames to their actual values at
runtime... something like "@wifi-network(ssid=foo)" but this is just a very
vague idea I had from time to time throughout the last few years which never
gained any traction.
