very cool!  systemd-networkd end up invoking wg(8)?  or does it interact
with the kernel directly?

if doesn't need wg(8), then once the new release of systemd is made, we
may want to change the dependency recommendations for the wireguard
kernel module packages.

iirc, NetworkManager imports a big chunk of systemd in each release
(yuck embedded code copies).  maybe it'll import the relevant wireguard
bits as well?  that would probably make the NM work an easier lift.
