the way we do this is to have iceS on one mountpoint and liveice on
another and we have a php script that logs into the icecast admin
interface and switches the default mountpoint at a specified time so no
matter how they connect to the stream (either direct client or .pls
file) they still get the mountpoint we want them to see at that time.
