I am afraid this is all I needed to start
asking some real stupid questions...
I'll start with this, first, a few assertions:
'forward' is built in to the routing engine?
As I understand it, forward simply sends the message to the
hostname and port I specify, statelessly.
This sends the message to the host and port as specified
by the current uri, statelessly.
't_relay' is a module, not part of the main routing engine.
Send the message to host and port 'statefully'.
Send the message to the host and port as specified by
the current uri, statefully.
OK, now a question. These two sets of operations seem very
similar on the surface. I think I understand 'statelessly', the
message is simply fired off and all memory of the message is
gone. I am trying to grasp 'stateful'. What exactly is
different when using 't_relay()'? I am having a hard time
coming to understand 'stateful' transactions.

We just released this documentation update.
Yes, forward is built-in, t_relay/t_relay_to is
part of tm modules. forward(<host>,<port>) or
t_relay_to("<host>", "<port>") sends a request
to the address in params. forward(uri:host, uri:port)
and t_relay() sends a request to the address in current
