I tried emacs-git-25.0.50.r120726 now (without my patched erc-join.el),
and tried setting the new option `erc-rename-buffers' to t, but that
doesn't fix my problem. From what I can tell, the erc-join code doesn't
care about buffer names (or the mode-line format), only
erc-server-announced-name/erc-session-server, when choosing what
channels to join.

The problem is that the erc-server-announced-name/erc-session-server
returned from my Weechat relay is "relay.irc" (while erc-network is the
more useful 'freenode or 'Bitlbee).

So say that I first join the freenode network through my relay, then
join #fsf; now erc-autojoin-channels-alist will contain an entry

    ("relay.irc" "#fsf")

Then I join the BitlBee network though my relay, which also has that
same server-name "relay.irc", and erc tries to autojoin #fsf on the
BitlBee network since it doesn't know how to tell that they're different
From each other. (Similarly, I would have to use "relay.irc" as the key
in erc-autojoin-channels-alist in order to autojoin anything at all on
the first connect.)
