updating an ogg stream via url is not really recommended, or even tested
each release as it is best to do that at the source client. The
mechanism is there purely for common MP3 handling

There is a compilable module for handling vorbis only metadata via url
insertions in the kh tree but that may not be working, due to some
changes for theora. If it isn't then it won't be a major problem, but
I'll have to check it later on.

icecast2 uses http auth so you should be able to use
