Description (last modified by zooko)

I decided to take a crack at the multiple introducers problem. I've implemented a proof of concept relay, that connects to two, or more, introducer nodes and relays announcements between them.

This would be used to connect two, or more, separate grids, so that nodes connected to either introducer, would would be aware of nodes connected to other introducers.

Also, this demonstrates the fact that introducer nodes do not validate announcements at all, as the relay can easily modify the data it is relaying.

This seems redundant with #68. Merge the tickets?

socrates: thanks for the patch! This ticket is redundant with #68, so I'm merging the two, but I'd also like to draw attention to this patch to readers of that ticket, so I'll post a comment there.
