[Icecast-dev] Dumpstream split based time/size

Currently I'm using a pretty dirty way to split streams. I kill the client
every hour. But a more decent approach would be setting a time mask for
dumpfile. Or an external event making a new file at event time.

One problem i see are keyframes. The new file should split after the
last 'normal frame' so the new file gets a keyframe first.

What would be a proper way to do this? Start a new thread that keeps track
of the time and does the events per mount? Since this could be a broader
used thread should this be a feature request or up to me?
