I wasn't sure whether to suggest this before, but adding Wireguard
support to OpenConnect ought to be fairly easy. We already support
three VPN protocols, so we have a *relatively* sane distinction between
the protocol-specific parts, and all the OS-specific tun device
handling and other bits that would just be gratuitous wheel-reinvention 
for you.

It basically gives you support for Windows, Solaris, OSX, Android and
various BSDs for nothing. With NetworkManager support.

For a client that *isn't* purely wrapping the kernel implementation, it
probably makes sense rather starting from scratch. If anyone's
interested in working on it, I'd be happy to give some pointers.

(I've also looked in the past at adding kernel support too, for DTLS
acceleration; I may take a look at that again.)
