Relays that don't have sufficient mean-time-between-failure don't get the
Stable flag, and streams whose destination ports are in the LongLivedPorts
list avoid relays that don't have the Stable flag.

  V(LongLivedPorts,              CSV,

Currently moria1 is voting 1068997 seconds for the MTBF threshold,
i.e. a bit over 12 days.

So dynamic relays can still be useful, and hopefully we won't end up
cutting too many ssh sessions.
