Tell him to use proper plugin to stream =)

There is no actually good way to do that, because incoming shout streams
mountpoints are named in the order that streams connect.
I did this by connecting my source streams in order, first 128k then 56k and
then i did aliases /hi /med /lo
point to /icy_0, /icy_1 and /icy_2

From. Encoder password is different thing.
