Icecast2 supports relaying, but not "relay on demand"... where relays
are only opened if a listener connects.  Relays are opened when Icecast2
runs, they're available the whole time.

Honestly, I think if a radio stream is worried about wasting bandwidth
by streaming and not having anyone listen, you should really look into
just putting standalone audio programs and music on a website until you
can count on more listenership.
