[icecast-dev] mountpoint fallback support

After I installed the latest nightly build, it looks like the fallback works without rebuffering.  I do see one problem -- when the main mountpoint stream restarts, the fallback continues to play.  Once I stop the fallback mountpoint stream, the main mountpoint stream restarts, but only after client rebuffering
Also, during the mountpoint switchovers, sometimes the meta-data is lost in the clients.  
thank you,

Yes, this would work. There should be no need to dynamically load different
config files (though you might choose to set it up like that), but that
should work fine anyway.
