Hello again,

I was wondering what the status is of the integration of wireguard into
bird and whether there is any help needed?

I am wondering, because integrating wireguard into bird would easily
allow to create wireguard server clusters that would announce only the
connected clients via BGP:

  | \               |
  | --------------- |
server1              server2
[wireguard+bird]     [wireguard+bird]
  \                   /
  BGP               BGP
   -------- | -------
     upstream router

This would not only to easily create any number of failover VPN
endpoints, but also allowing to easily implement load balancing.
