It's non-trivial, but not super hard.  Since i'm the only one writing
server code, it's not likely to ever get done, as most of my efforts are
on icecast2.

Ices already supports updating all the information.  For instance, if
you used it with a shoutcast server, it would work with songtitles.

It will even work in icecast without a relay.
