It turns out that /libexec/dhcpcd-hooks/10-wpa_supplicant is marked as
obsolete in the set lists; this means that postinstall will remove it,
which is clearly wrong because *I* copied it there from the examples
folder as I need it (otherwise dhcpcd connects to the nearest open
network, which I don't want as it won't work for me)

I'll let the people who bitched to me about removing it come up with a solution to that problem. I'm sunning myself on holiday and I don't have the grey matter for serious though right now.
But it's probably not needed, see below.

I don't know how best to fix that.. clearly its at cross-purposes?

Look into the wpa_supplicant interface matching support documented in wpa_supplicant(8).

wpa_supplicant_flags="-M -c /etc/wpa_supplicant.conf"


wpa_supplicant_flags="-M -i iwn* -c /etc/wpa_supplicant.conf"
