Relay offers

Description

It would be handy to have a standard way for an instance to offer to act as a relay for another instance, indicating how long it's willing to do so, and how much extra bandwidth it's prepared to commit to the task.

Additionally, in order to decide whether to accept a relay offer, the recipient might want to know the latencies from the sender to the recipient's peers' relays (and whether the sender is able to communicate with those relays at all). A special relay request could be used for this, with the initiator's public key set to 0.
