Android feature request: import from URL

Would it be possible for the Wireguard Android app to import profiles
directly from an URL in a webpage? I imagine this could be implemented by
recognizing URLs like "wireguard:" or "wireguard://" followed by a
Base64-encoded config blob, similar in style to "data:" URIs.

A few other VPN applications also support adding VPN profiles directly from
an URL (e.g. strongSwan recognizes https://*.sswan JSON files); this would
be simpler than downloading and importing a file and doesn't require a
second device the way QR-codes do. (I'm trying to create a self-service VPN
system for students, and want the provisioning process to be as
straightforward as possible.)
