We are always open to adding additional types that have at least one 
supported encoder.  I'm not familiar with AAC or AACP, in your test streams 
how are you dealing with metadata ?  Are they shoutcast-in-line type ?

if you have patches, please send them along to this mailing list, and if 
they look good, they should get incorporated.  Also, sending copies of the 
encoder would help as well (not to the list obviously)....Your better off 
sending that to me, since I'm pretty much the only one on the dev team that 
runs windows...Once the content types (and their handlers) are added to 
icecast, they will then get added to the YP server as well.

as Mike said, send them to the list, and we'll take it from there....
