Flume >> mail # user >> RELP support?

Re: RELP support
Hi Otis,

It makes sense for flume to support RELP protocol.
Will need to do some digging to determine whether it makes sense to have
its own unique source or we can bolt this onto the multiport tcp source as
a config switch. Unless someone on the list has any ideas?
