Sorry, I mis-read your idea Dave.  It is a good one.  To further your idea,
icecast2 could send the number of listeners back to the client everytime a
connection is opened or dropped.  This would allow the number of listeners
to be displayed at the client which would be very useful.  And it could also
control whether audio data is sent or not.  It would be a good thing to add
to the spec I think.
