   Now playing only works with title streaming.  this won't work through a
   relay in icecast.  We never got to it.

I see.  Is it difficult to implement?

   What's the 'longer description"  is that the icecast description field?
   If so, shoutcast never supported those anyway. and yp.icecast.org
   doesn't list them on the front page.  I had a yp.icecast.org at oen time
   that used them, but never finished it.

Apparently this is the -d command line option in ices.  Perhaps I
could hack ices to read the title from each file and update this;
would that work?  Is this already possible in the perl extensions?
