If you are not too bothered about running more experimental code, then
try my mods, I've added this weekend.


just add <on-demand>1</on-demand> to the relay definition. The bulk of
the infrastructure to support on-demand relays should be going in CVS as
it really deals with something else.  The extra work for implementing
on-demand specifically needs to be discussed before going into CVS
