Changes: server capability "server-time" can be enabled to include time of messages as a tag (client must support it, WeeChat supports tags in devel version), and 5 new options:
- relay.irc.backlog_max_minutes
- relay.irc.backlog_max_number
- relay.irc.backlog_since_last_disconnect
- relay.irc.backlog_tags
- relay.irc.backlog_time_format

Purpose of task is to add backlog for irc protocol in relay plugin.

Before this backlog will be sent to client, a signal will be sent in the WeeChat relaying.

When relay plugin is going to send backlog to connecting client, weechat should provide possibility for script to hook this signal, so it can be executed just before buffer's backlog transmission.

This way script can inject lines from yet another datastore other than backlog, for example database.

This would be useful for people using weechat as "bouncer" as days might pass between connections, and for storing this amount of messages backlog might not be enough on busy channels.
