I was thinking about moving to new location plus symlink also, but left
it open for now.

And I really hate connecting to open ap's out of the box. Even worse, if
another network block is appended to the conf, without add priority=X,
the open networks will be connected to first, that sucks.
Additionally, moving that file out of conffile territory would get rid
of those pesky messages when installing new wpasupplicant packages,
prompting to overwrite a working, personal configuration file with a
generic one . . .
