Jason and Matt - outstanding, outstanding job. I've comfortably ran 
Wireguard on OpenBSD with Jason's first build script for roughly 1 1/2 
years, but I'm happy to see Wireguard is now in-kernel and development 
will continue there.

Thank you two for all of your efforts you've made.
I hope everyone else is as excited about this as I am!
