It tells Icecast2 to allow serving non-.xsl files from its <webroot>
subdirectory (the one where status.xsl resides). A file
/path/to/<basedir>/<webroot>/test.ogg can be streamed on demand, it
would be accessible via http://host:port/test.ogg then. This is basic
web server functionality, so you don't need a separate Apache to stream
on demand/offer downloads.
