It took me a while to look into it. I looked at libshout in ices-0.2.2, 
and at the icecast 1.3.11 source.

What I found is that you can set the "song title" and "stream message" 
properties of the stream. But xmms displays the "description" of the 
stream, and does not seem to bother about the "song title" or "stream 

Is this functionality as intneded? How can I change what gets displayed 
by the client? (E.g. the "description" of the stream, or make the client 
care about the "song title" or the "stream message")
