[icecast] Multiple ICES background daemons

Is there anyway to run multiple ices backgroud deamons and have more than 
one ices.pid file generated so that I can control each one seperately? I 
want to have mulitple ices streams running with different playlists and 
different stream names and control them using the signals.

I start one ices process and it writes a file ices.pid to the /tmp 
directory and I can control it sy sending it signals. It appears like the 
second ices process I try to start writes it's pid to the ices.pid file 
when it is started effectively cutting off any way to communicate with the 
first ices daemon. 

It would be nice if there was a way to have some sort of mechanisn to 
specify an alternate location for the ices.pid file or to name the file 
something different like ices.streamname.pid or something like that.
