Note that the previous installation instructions (basically, just "sudo
apt install wireguard-tools wireguard-dkms") were valid for Debian sid.
The new installation instructions are only valid for Debian jessie and
Debian stretch (admittedly, probably the largest fraction of Debian
users). But I still think you should reflect this in the instructions.
Debian wheezy is not supported (with its old 3.2 kernel), although it
could be possible to use wireguard with the wheezy-backports kernel
(3.16). I don't think it's worth mentioning it anyway, Wheezy is
old-stable and will soon be old-old-stable.
