An authentication server is really for handling the requests made by
icecast, not by the listener. The 'icecast-auth-user:' header is only
meant for icecast. The authentication server could technically be used
for sending back media content for the listener but whether that is
better than sending back a filename that icecast could use is debatable.

If you think there is a missing feature then you can still report it.
