wg-quick invoking resolvectl instead of resolvconf on systems where that is appropriate?

OK, that answers that :)

I suspect there are more GNU/Linux systems in the world right now that
have resolvectl installed than have all versions of resolvconf installed
put together, but if you'd rather that wg-quick depends on the
interpretation of the resolvconf interface on the given system, that
works for me.

I'm sure you understand that debian can't ship the resolvconf symlink
directly in the systemd package because it would conflict with the
resolvconf and openresolv packages; but i'll follow up over in
https://bugs.debian.org/939904 to see if we can figure out a way to ship
a separate binary package from the same source that automatically
enables this support.

thanks for the prompt followup,
