Thanks for your comments!
I really like the systemctl reload approach. My main intention with
this patchset was to add this feature to wg-quicks arsenal because (at
least for me) it's the most obvious approach. I mainly use `wg-quick
down wg0 && wg0 up wg0`, I think you guys see where I'm coming from.

I haven't dealt with systemd units yet, but I can certainly look into
it and submit a corresponding patch soon.
