the patch is very good, almost ready to push, but I would like to
request  more work.

First, a very minor reason why I'm not pushing it right away is
that I believe relay states should be matched with applier states.

The matching applier states are OFF, FOLLOW and STOPPED. 
I think it would be easier for users if we don't invent new states
on relay side. 

Second, we allocate relay object on stack; this seems to be a historical
artifact, we have had struct relay before we got struct replica.
Relay has a diagnostics area, so by keeping the relay around we
will be able to display the last error in a way similar to

I'm not talking about pushing the message back from the applier to
relay - this seems to be an unnecessary hassle and will complicate
things quite a bit.
