first off I'd like to say that we really do appreciate the work you did, 
and we encourage (very much so) contributions from other developers..this 
is the kind of thing that helps icecast tremendously...

that being said, here are my thoughts on this patch...

I'm not a big fan of the "run command" features.  I believe that adds a bit 
too much complexity (not to mention the fact that this approach won't work 
in win32) for the benefit it provides.

The fallback enhancements though I think are really very good and should be 
included in icecast.  This is a bit of a complicated scenario so it might 
take a bit to get it integrated and tested, but definately worthwhile.
