hazmat pointed out on IRC that this is possible now, and that 
"relation-get -h" gives some direction on how.  Putting "relation-get 
-h" and 
together, if you want to get the value for "mykey" that you set in a 
relation, you can use "relation-get mykey $JUJU_UNIT_NAME".

hazmat continued, "it needs  documentation, and it looks like it should 
be a switch so a key doesn't need to be specified."

Sounds good to me.
