no that would be wrong, \relax generates a mathord and this is precisely
why you can't define commands in TeX to go

\relax\iffmode...

as this messes up spacing. anyhow i'm not sure why you would want to have a
\relax there (and eqnarry is inferior for doing serious math compared to the
amsmath environments)
