[icecast] Icecast2 Ogg Clients

<p>I was streaming Ogg Vorbis to a mount point which didn't end .ogg

ogg123 played the stream without any problems, but other clients 
(xmms, Audion) just kept rebuffering and failed to detect that it as 
an Ogg encoded stream.

Surely the client should use the MIME type provided by the server 
rather than rely on the suffix in a URL ?

<p>Is there any attempt to encourage clients to be more standard ?
