Hmm, I don't have the time to dive into this right now, but before this
goes much further I'd like to remark, that XML itself supports includes
and that works with Icecast already. I remember someone trying it out.

It would probably need to be revisited as I seem to remember, that 
there was a bug and when HUP'ing the server it wouldn't read includes.

I'd rather see that XML functionality working properly than 
an Icecast specific patch.
