How about not supporting direct execution of commands in the config [Interface] section but rather support an optional path to where a fixed command (ex. wireguard.script) is found...
ActionScriptDir = /usr/local/bin
Then instead of executing the PostUp/PostDown/PreUp/PreDown data, the wg-quick script would call:
/usr/local/bin/wireguard.script PRE_UP|PRE_DOWN|POST_UP|POST_DOWN "$INTERFACE"
1) When called, the first argument would be one of: PRE_UP|PRE_DOWN|POST_UP|POST_DOWN
2) When called, the second argument would be the wireguard interface.
3) If ActionScriptDir is not defined, then wireguard.script is not called.
This requires an extra step to be taken to create a wireguard.script file with execute permissions and possibly require specific ownership.
