I forwarded this mail to Marvin at StreamLicensing, and I told him that 
he might want to join the mailinglist to pursue this matter further.

Me acting as a middleman is impractical in the long run (like forgetting 
to forward a mail and letting it collect dust for example).
So hopefully he or another direct representative will pop up in the future.

Personally I still think it's important that Icecast 2 can provide the 
same stats as Shoutcast v1, Shoutcast v2 and Icecast-KH does "out of the 
box". (maybe add it for Icecast 2.4.x or 2.5.0?)

And in the long run a proper low load stats API/login for royalty 
collector purposes could be implemented (Icecast 2.5? 2.6? 2.7? 3.0 ?) 
for the long run as suggested earlier by whomever it was (sorry I forgot).
Todays "hammering" once every minute or so is not the best design (being 
a programmer I'm well aware of that).
I'm sure even SoundExchange and the acronyms out there would not mind 
standardizing some of the info presented (to allow accurate geographical 
stats that still respect privacy) if it means they'll get even more 
accurate data than currently.
