Wireguard aims to be simple and secure. The name of device is used to
identify it, not to make a gestures to anyone. All wg/wg-quick commands
are in latin (english). I don't see much benefit of executing commands
like 'wg showconf ☢' instead of 'wg showconf abc123' other than someone's
egoistic pleasure.
