[icecast-dev] Writing a client

I need to write an Icecast client, it seems pretty straight forward: open
up an HTTP connection, send the request, strip off the header and send the
rest to the ogg vorbis decoder.  My only question is: how does the server
know or not know when a client is behind?  Should my client only read from
the socket when its buffer isn't full?  Or is there some other mechanism? 
What would happen if I read continuously, dropping data that doesn't fit
in my buffer?
