[icecast-dev] No source buffering

There appears no source buffering in Icecast 2.0. Please correct me if I'm
wrong -- my C skills are a bit rusty -- it looks like apart from a tiny 4K
buffer, there is no buffering done when relaying a source.

Is this an explicit design decision? The Internet being what it is,
unreliable and all, it seems harsh to drop a source that's even slightly
lagging, when a bit of buffering could smooth over the bumps.

My reading of the code was actually prompted by experiencing frequent
disconnects on an international relay link. Am I correct in my analysis?
