[icecast-dev] Client auth with mysql

This is a great idea, and I'm sure many people would like to take advantage
of it. Since the release of 2.0.0, we've added an "authenticator"
framework which allows us to create authentication modules for handling
listener (client-based) authentication. We currently have one
authentication module (htpasswd) which uses a simple file to store users
and encrypted passwords. With this new framework, adding additional
authenticators (URL, mysql, etc.) should be fairly simple, or at least
that's the intent...
as you patch stands right now, I'm not sure it will be adopted, however the
chances are very good if you re-write it using the authenticator framework
that is currently in the most current Subversion repository...
