[icecast] restricting encoder bitrate

Is it possible to restrict on the server the bitrates used by the
connecting encoders? I want to allow friends to connect to my server but
don't want them using bitrates of, say, 128kbit and raping my bandwidth.

Would it be easy to modify the source to disconnect them if their stated
birate is greater than a variable i set? Any suggestions on how to go
about doing this would be much appreciated :)
