I was looking through the source code last night, and libshout-2.x does
do URL encoding of the key/value pairs for metadata. Have a look at
shout.c:308, util.c:247, and util.c:139. I looked at the "safechars"
array, and from what I can figure (straight ASCII table right?), "-"'s
are URL encoded when they don't need to be. When I changed that array,
recompiled, and ran; everything worked out fine.
