[icecast] Runaway icecast again (more YP issues)

I am currently working on clustering, and doing it so that no changes need
to be made to the icecast2->yp interface. Currenlty, I am planning to
cluster based off server name and listing IP. So this means that if your
icecast2 server is hosting 5 mountpoints, they will all get clustered
together. LAter this logic will be extended to deal with relays as well
(relays that exist on different IPs), but for the time being I'm trying to
keep it simple.
and I don't like the concept of whacking entries if a server duplicate is
detected....waiting 5 minutes for the listing to clear is fine in this
case...Also, keep in mind that the yp protocol is simple enough for you to
do whatever you'd like to do (Arc is writing his own YP for instance) and
my implementation is simply an example implementation.
