Andrew, if you'd like help creating a truly cross-platform library in 
python, I'm happy to help. The reasons wgnlpy is currently Netlink-only 
is that I was developing it for a Linux system and pyroute2 didn't 
support Wireguard yet. If embeddable-wg-library supported UAPI and BSD 
too, then hooking it up to Pyhton via CFFI would make a lot of sense, 
and I'm potentially able to help with that as well. ~Derrick
