If you use Nullsoft's tools, you cannot specify mount points.  That's
because the Nullsoft team never added multiple streams per server.  If
you run shoutcast, you have to create extra servers.

If you send an icy (shoutcast-style) stream to icecast, it assign you a
mountpoint like /icy_0.  if you connect another (from a different ip
address), it will assign you /icy_1, etc.

You cannot connect to icy style stream to an icecast server from the
same mountpoint, because of the source reconnection features of icecast

You do this only in the clients.  the .aut stuff is for controlling
access.  Ie, you can put a password on certain mountpoints.  But you
cannot change the mountpoints there.

You can change a mountpoint after a stream has connected by using the
'modify' command at the console.
