Well, there'd be no reason to use nasty regex's even if you did just use the
XSL output - just write XSL transforms that output exactly what you want.

However, for those that don't like that approach for whatever reason (there
are many such reasons, and one or two of them are even valid ones), the raw
XML is available at /admin/stats.xml on the server, from where you can fetch
it and save it on your hard drive if you so desire. Icecast won't do that bit
for you, though.
