[icecast-dev] Access control for static file streaming

Hi list,

I've had a play around with static.c and added access control (using
Postgres) for static file streaming.

The code is still v. rough as I wrote it whilst dying in bed with flu
last week so I'm a bit reluctant to release it until it's had a tidy-up.

Access is granted by appending a session id to the url which is stripped
and checked to see if the session id lives in the DB (below).


Directory browsing has been disabled otherwise you can just walk around
it :)

Next to change is the removing of the filename and replacing it with a
resource id which can be matched against a filename in the DB.

Are these useful features for others?  Any suggestions for further
