        I've just completed a conversion of the perl Shout-1.0 library
to something that will talk to an icecast2 server. I'll be submitting
the results for inclusion back to the icecast site.

        One thing is missing: proper metadata support.

        this feature has changed since icecast 1; previously it was a 
single string. now, it's a linked list of key/value pairs.
I'd love to add and test this feature, but I don't know how to use
it, and can't find any docs on it.

        can anyone tell me how this feature works? in particular, I'd
like to know what keys are valid, and what they do. I'd also like to
know which key is used to set the title string on xmms during stream
playback. (assuming it's still used for the same functionality).
