This, you can do by adding a little shell code to rc.conf. (At least
you can as of 4.x and 5.x; I don't know whether that capability has
been yet another casualty of the drive to trivialize automated
administration in more recent versions.)

newbtconf(8) can do something very much like this (and a bunch more).
