I too would prefer this, and maybe at some point down the line I'll
put some real time and effort into porting WireGuard from the Linux
kernel to kFreeBSD. But it's not the case that it's "not that hard";
doing so will be a pretty serious undertaking. That's going to take a
lot of time. Until that day arrives, what you speak of doesn't exist.
What we have instead today is tons of hard work that's gone into
bringing a userspace implementation.

So please, don't derail the current efforts in favor of an effort that
doesn't even exist at the moment.
