[icecast] specify mountpoint by source IP?

I have several Macs encoding streams using MacAmp. I'd like to stream 
them all to my icecast server, but if I do that they are all assigned 
mountpoints depending on the order that they connect (ie. /icy_0, 
/icy_1, /icy_2). This means that if power glitches and my systems 
reboot, they streams will all reconnect in a more or less random 

Is there any way to trick icecast into assigning a particular 
mountpoint to a stream from a particular IP address?

Currently I'm running a shoutcast server for each stream, and then 
aliasing the shoutcast stream from icecast. Obviously a hassle.

I don't know of any streaming client for the Mac that will allow me 
to specify the mountpoint.
