Yes, they would be better. However each command has slight
inefficiencies for my usecase:
 - `wg setconf` removes the endpoints of peers that don't have a static
endpoint address
 - `wg addconf` cannot remove peers
 - `wg syncconf` needs to be given the exact allowed IPs of all peers
it has to keep, not just the ones that have changed. It will also
remove all peers that were added manually by the user (and not by my

For now I will either use `wg syncconf`, or maybe `wg addconf` +
multiple `wg set peer remove`.

I've been thinking, how stable is the IPC protocol? It might be nice to
have a tool/daemon/something that makes it possible to use the protocol
to configure devices that natively use netlink or OpenBSD ioctls.
