To Barulio,

Interesting; but Arch is insistent on KISS for the system as a priority. Your 
script seems to specific to a particular wireless module (ath9k)  and still 
requires some user interactions judging from your use of "nano".

You can direct pacman to a different mount point with the -r <mount-point> 
option. That way you can edit a good deal of your new Arch Linux install 
without chrooting into it.
