I do not understand the Wireguard hype _so_ much.  Adds a lot of
complexity to the kernel, and the win is in-kernel crypto.  Ok.
Being able to use normal ifconfig programs.  Ok.  No tun/tap ok.
But everything else including easy configuration you can get with
TinC in userspace for a long, long time, and it works everywhere,
only needs OpenSSL.  And 1.1 can the new ciphers etc.
Just wondering.
