It's combined log format + one variable on the end.  It's not
customizable.  All parsers I'ved worked with ignore extra variables, so
that last variable is skipped by www log parsers, but can be used by a
custom icecast parser.  Also certain parsers probably have the ability
to do custom fields. But i've never used one.

Webalizers always been my favorite.  it's likely that I will eventually
write something custom for icecast, especially in teh interest of making
BMI and ASCAP reports easier to do.
