Getting netctl to play nice with suspend/resume and roaming

I often move my laptop while it is suspended. This means I go from one wifi-network to another (home, girlfriends, school, parents). nettl doesn't seem to handle this very well, netctl-sleep only seems to resume the preious if it is still available, whlie netctl-auto only seems to do it's thing at boot.

Has anyone done something like this yet?

I don't use netctl-sleep or netctl-auto, but from reading the man page, I would be inclined to set it up so that netctl-auto gets restarted on resume.

Netctl-auto works fine ...you don't need to mess with it between suspend resume cycles even when moving between known networks. I have found it to be a bit fragile when moving to a new network. If you have trouble setting it up I will help when I get back to my computer.
