~/src/icecast-trunk/src$ grep -i aac *
fserve.c:        else if(!strcmp(ext, "aac"))
fserve.c:            type = strdup ("audio/aac");

Yeah, that's all there is.
The 'support' was apparently essentially 'check if it does actually
work' in pass through mode also with AAC, not only with MP3.

We're not going to remove, pass through support, among other things
not to break backwards compatibility.

I'll soon send some more detailed thoughts on the whole situation.
