actually, as it turns out, this does make alot of sense, because most 
authentication/subscription logic is going to be fairly complicated and 
needs to be customizable for each "subscription service".  adding logic to 
icecast2 to do simple URL calls when listeners connect (the URL call 
validating the user and allowing/denying access) and letting the external 
scripts do all the necessary "subscription logic" is a nice easy way to 
setup a subscription service....

just my experience :)
