these instructions already assume that you have both wireguard-dkms and
wireguard-tools installed.  wireguard-tools supplies both wg(8) and
wg-quick(8), which are used in the different /etc/network/interfaces
stanzas there.

Matthias was suggesting a simply-named meta-package: just "wireguard",
which would ensure that both wireguard-dkms and wireguard-tools are
installed.  The advantage there is that you can tell people to do:

   apt install wireguard

and apt make sure the system has the common setup by default :)
