you can specify a username and password within <relay> if it's a stream
that requires it, but again it's as if you are an authenticated listener

In a master/slave setup, where a slave mirrors all the non-hidden
streams, the slave needs to get a streamlist, and it does that by
requesting that list from the master server using the relay password
that is specified in the master xml file <relay-password>. So
relay-password in the master must match the master-password in the slave.
