Hmm, I don't know how it is in OSX, but it is sort of perfect for *me*
under linux. I simply open the lid whereever I am and it detects whether
I am in the office at home or connected through somme open net.

And yes, when I plug in the ethernet plug eth1 is ifdown'd and eth0 goes
up in the right network. Same vice versa.

This all works through ifplugd and ifupdown-roaming.

However you seem to ask for access point hopping, which is what aphopper
is for http://aphopper.sourceforge.net/

I would also consider having a look at
it has really a lot of useful infos.
