[Icecast-dev] Relaying

I am relaying an shoutcast stream using icecast2. There aren't many
listeners (yet), so I was wondering if it would be possible to only
connect to the source server if there are any listeners, to save
bandwith. The two servers are practically on a LAN, so connection time
is minimal. I think the listeners wouldn't notice any delay at all.

So my question is: is this currently supported, and if not, would it be
easy to implement?

Kind regards,
