Sticking with 0) makes most sense to me. Just because systemd (>=
23something) supports wireguard, if wireguard-dkms can't rely on the
support being there then recommending its "own" tools is more reliable,
and more portable.
Alternatively, perhaps an "Enhances: systemd" ? e.g. wireguard-dkms
doesn't _need_ systemd, doesn't work any _better_ with systemd, but
definitely adds something _to_ systemd.
