I'd love to take a look at this script, and, more than likely, I'm not
the only one :)

Please post an example.

> Liveice definitely needs a keepalive script of some kind. It's tricky,
> though - since it can lose connection to the server & stop streaming, but
> continue to run. The only truly reliable keepalive I've used polls the
> server to see if it says the stream is up & if not kills & restarts liveice.
> When killing liveice, it's best to kill the lame process(es) that it spawns
> as well. I've seen it leave behind zombie lame processes that prevent
> liveice from starting up.
