[WireGuard] Kubernetes/Neutron support

I'm investigating using Wireguard to provide a network solution for 
Kubernetes via a CNI or exec network driver - has anyone done anything 
on this already?

We currently have about 500 pods, on 30 nodes, in our production 
cluster (though plan to scale to about 20-30 times this), and use a 
combination of OpenvSwitch (gre+IPsec tunnels between hosts) and 
Flannel (Each host has a sub-net on a standard Linux bridge) to provide 
connectivity. Though need to both improve availability and east-west 
traffic distribution, especially when pods may be located is different 
geographic regions, and are migrating to a solution based on OpenStack 
Neutron with Dragonflow as the SDN layer.

Does anyone have any advice on the best way to implement such a 
solution? We plan to implement a reasonably 'intelligent' strategy 
where by our Neutron plugin identifies the most appropriate link for 
each compute node, and so expect WireGuard to only be utilized for 
inter-dc connections. In particular any input on the number of 
connections a single node can take (ie full-mesh style topology), 
before dedicated network nodes and a hub and spoke topology makes 
sense? Any advice would be appreciated, and if we find that Wireguard 
fits our needs then I'd love to get involved in the project.
