[Bitcoin-development] Missing fRelayTxes in version message

It's not a bug (although there was recently a change to make bitcoind/qt
always send this field anyway).

I don't know where Amir is going with BIP 60. Version messages have always
been variable length. There's nothing inherent in the Bitcoin protocol that
says all messages are fixed length, indeed, tx messages are allowed to have
arbitrary data appended after them that gets relayed.
