Make it shoutcast DNAS compatible, perhaps?

It's true that over the past years NullSoft's decisions re: YP have 
been sudden and seemingly arbitrary for a outfit that wants to keep 
Internet radio open and free, which is also something which has evolved 
past it's cool curiosity status to a commercially viable entity some 
time ago.

Internet streaming radio already has too many sandboxes, in terms of 
codecs, protocols (metadata, ICY vs. HTTP) and especially YP. If we 
provide the glue to bind at least YP together, then hey, more people 
coming to icecast.org and learning about the software.
