I'm open to suggestions. It could be changed to not send messages to
rex but net_kernel like originally, net_kernel could forward them to
rex like now for compatibility but instead change the From field to the
originator and allow rex to reply back. I didn't do that originally
because 1) I didn't want the extra hop and 2) proxying through
net_kernel allows the filter to know it's from an older node.
Or revert the merging of spawn with rpc and duplicate the filter logic.
I'm not really a fan of either but would prefer the former if the new
-> old node spawning won't be acceptable.
