[icecast] SUID and Ices

I've been recently trying to get ices to setuser to 'nobody' so I can have
a PHP script skip to the next track (apache will run the scripts as 'nobody').
Unfortunately, it won't allow me, since I'm using a Perl playlist module --
it gives me the error: No -I allowed while running setuid. After a quick scan
of the ices source, I see that it's a perl option rather than ices.

Any ideas on how to get around this, and the security implications thereof?
