In the prototyping patch you developed for WireGuard, did you consider
prototyping being able to bind to an interface, instead of explicitly
specifying an IP address? An example case for being able to bind to an
interface could be a multi-wan connected firewall/router with dynamic
public IP addresses offered by the upstream provider no at least one
connection. E.g. Primary fiber line, backup DSL line.
