[icecast] Oddcast suggestion

What would be really useful is if your winamp plugin could monitor the
number of listeners on the IceCast2 server and only send the audio when
listeners > 0. Perhaps the metadata could continue to be sent. This would
reduce bandwidth requirements substantially when there are several hundred,
perhaps thousands of streams as planned by http://www.rville.com.
It would also be very useful to me as I have a 5gig limit per month on my
DSL which only allows me to broadcast for 14 days continuously at 32kb/s. I
could extend this considerably.
What do you think? Any possibility for the future?
