That's a weird way of putting it, because you != we.

config wireguard_wg
       option public_key '0Nz4n2wdhDJtFbkdIFqlJ4vkKIGFgBVQPxyJ0XWE31o='
       list allowed_ips ''
       option route_allowed_ips '1'
config interface 'wgnet'
       option proto 'static'
       option ifname 'wg'
       option ipaddr ''
root at mipsnet:~# ip r dev wg  src dev wg

We can drop the discussion, though, because Baptiste, the downstream
package maintainer, doesn't want to maintain that kind of logic and
evidently finds Linux's v4 LC-trie and v6 radix trie to be fast enough
for his purposes. I don't find the duplicated entries very desirable,
but I'm totally fine deferring to his judgement.

I think calling `wg show $if endpoints` like you do is the correct
solution. Good thinking. I'll put some comments on the PR.
