I'm working on this right now.
It should be ready by mid-January, but it needs a proposal, so maybe it will
end up in 0.3.4 instead.

I would also like to make it easier to configure IPv6 relays. IPv6 support isn't
as useful as it could be, because only 15% of relays support IPv6.
Address autodetection would go a long way here.

Seems good to me.
I want to try and focus on getting minimum working code.
Then we can add extra features later.

We can do parts in 0.3.3 and parts in 0.3.4.
