Yeah, the stream name 'n stuff is set in the streamer's config (e.g.
ices2).  this is pretty obvious since the name of a stream is different for
each stream.

YP servers are meant to be directories of a whole bunch of streams from a
whole bunch of servers.  If you just want to show stats and listen links
for your own streams on your own server, then there's probably not a lot of
point in running a YP server.  If you visit
http://www.oddsock.org/icecast2yp/ or http://yp.icecast.net you'll see many
streams listed from all sorts of places.
