It's not working... how long has this been in CVS?  Actually all the
relay entries, even the ones that are relaying Icecast2, have it.
Here's the entry for "Enemy Combatant Radio"'s hifi MP3 that is not


Here's what's being sent to, and responding from, the YP CGI:

< [MiniFieldStorage('action', 'add'), MiniFieldStorage('listenurl',
'http://liveradio.indymedia.org:8001/sf-hifi.mp3'), MiniFieldStorage('type', 
'MP3 audio')]
YPResponse: 0
YPMessage: Stream name is required.

And here's the header from the source server:

icy-name:Enemy Combatant Radio

Clearly, the stream name is not being relayed from shoutcast.  I
compiled this icecast from CVS less than a week ago, I believe, in an
attempt to fix YP and thus make it useable.

What's the alternative to <relay-shoutcast-metadata> if you want to
relay Icecast2 metadata vs shoutcast metadata, so I can fix the
non-shoutcast entries?  Do you use this for icecast1 servers as well?
