Well, one way is to use the filtering JEPs (62 & 63) - 63 has a
"redirect" action that would do this.

Though I wonder if we need to be thinking about true relaying abilities,
like email has. I suppose JEP-0033 is really needed here.

Or, we could just write protocol and semantics for this single case -
forwarding messages. Its doesn't seem generalised enough for my tastes,
but if there's only one requirement, then there's not much point adding
other stuff.

What other possible uses of this sort of thing can people think of?
