The wg-quick script uses an extension of the wg config file format, with
config keys such as Address which aren't recognized by wg.

If you wish to use a config file with both wg-quick and wg, you can use
the "wg-quick strip" verb to remove wg-quick options from the config
file. In some shells such as bash, this can be done quite comfortably:
$ wg syncconf wg0 <(wg-quick strip wg0)
