Why, yes it is. There's already quite a lot of shoutcast compatibility code in 
there... though not all of it works (the shoutcastDSP-protocol-compatibility 
code is utterly broken, for instance).

I don't think it's a big deal to check for icy-* as well as ice-*, personally, 
but I'm not going to be doing it.
