[Icecast-dev] RFC on this idea...

I mentioned I was hacking on icecast2 stats, and one of the additional 
things I'm thinking on implementing is per-mount authenticated stats.

See, as it is now, one needs the global server admin password to access 
and manage their mountpoints. So if you're in a situation where you 
have multiple customers with their own mount, giving them all the one 
admin access would be quite dubious in terms of security.

So I'm thinking this... a customer can access their stats by going to a 
URL such as http://server.com:8000/mountname/admin where they are then 
prompted for either their source login password or their own admin 
password (what would be best?) and be able to list clients and kill 
them, and whatever sundry administrivia may be available in the future.


maybe it should be like http://server.com:8000/admin/mountname ?
