I use wireguard on a Mac and it was as simple as "brew install 
wireguard-tools"; create config; "sudo wg-quick up wg0".

My even more stupid question is "why use wireguard if the only thing 
it's carrying is ssh?" - but I guess it's a convenient way to tunnel to 
a network which doesn't have public-routed addresses.

(Aside: I wish ssh had a feature like SNI, so that you could build an 
ssh proxy that forwards incoming connections to the right host.  I have 
done this before using an inbound SOCKS proxy, but it's messy to use)
