not in CVS ices2, the problem is fairly involved to get into, not so
much for the initial filename but for things such as timing out or if
there's a problem with the link to icecast.

If you want to try out something like this then look at my mods I did a
while ago in www.xiph.org/~karl, you'll need a slightly modified xml
file (look in conf/) and the libshout on there as well.

The expansion in there allows for strftime codes, so streams-%B/%X.ogg
should work just fine.
