If no, you have plainty of good solution available.

ifplugd is a software that detect when you plug a cable to your ethernet
interface and act accordingly.

whereami and friends, IIRC, are tools that try to identify to which lan
you are connected to.

I believe everything is there for the perfect solution (see my outdated
page http://cattlegrid.net/~christophe/titanium/airport.html ).

Recently Soeren Sonnenburg informed me that a soft nearly do what I ma
looking for but I have not yet tested it:
