I have kept an eye on this. It seems that you were mostly working
on the `xplatform` stuff, and haven't started on the actual
implementation of the protocol yet. My code has (partly)
implemented the protocol, but lacks the `xplatform` ui. So it
seems like a perfect time to merge efforts. What do you think?

And to all who are interested in userspace WG impls, in
particular Rust impls, I have adjusted the goal of my project to
“to write a secure, compatible, cross-platform and reasonably
fast user-space implementation of WireGuard in Rust”. I am also
committed to finishing and maintaining it. There is a big TODO
list, and contribution is welcome!

For those not closely following this thread, the project is at:
