[icecast] version confusion

You're right, the "version issue" is a mess. But it should be
considerably improved within the next few days. Barring surprises,
libshout 2.0 will be officially released Monday (including perl and
python bindings).

At the same time, ices 0.3 will be released, which does compile with
libshout 2.0 (and features a million bug fixes over ices 0.2.3). The
snapshots in http://xiph.org/~brendan/snapshots/ices have built
against the libshout 2 snapshots for quite some time.

ices2 will build against the released libshout 2.0. It will also build
against a libshout 2.0 snapshot as recent as itself.

I don't know when ices2 or icecast 2 will be released, but I am
confident they will build with the released versions of the libraries.

I apologise for the confusion, and hope this helps.
