[icecast] metadata update in the stream

This has come up earlier, but I don't remember a solution.
How do I update the metadata of the stream 'on the fly'? I'm thinking of
having a live stream (through darkice), with the title, author, etc.
metadata changed every once in a while to reflect the actual program.
How would I do that?
Should I insert such data into the mp3 / ogg voribs data somehow by
calling some functions of liblame / libvorbis?
Or is there some possibility to do this through the protocol with which
the data is sent to icecast?
At the moment, the only place I put meta data into is when the source
logs in to the icecast server. There, in the header, there is a
possibility to put metadata. But this persists throughout the stream.
How do I change it?
