Relaying (done already) and mp3 streaming (done already - but the support
for that is pretty limited. No metadata, for example). Serverside stream
dump doesn't seem terribly important - but if it's something you care
about, adding it should be easy. Patches welcome.

Anything can be set - icecast2 basically doesn't care, it'll send
any metadata that it receives, for vorbis. You just have to send a
vorbis stream with the metadata set as you want (in the second
vorbis header). If you want to update the metadata (i.e. change it
mid-stream), you have to start a new logical stream within the
same physical stream, with a new set of headers.
