[icecast] Oddcast suggestion

I don't develop in C unfortunately, but I think I've thought of another
way of doing it for those using Winamp.

A DSP plugin could be developed to read /admin/streamlist to get number
of listeners.  If listeners is zero then zero the audio data.  Place
this in front of the OddCast DSP.  I'm not exactly sure what is possible
with a DSP plugin.  Someone else may know if the audio data can be
completely removed or does it need to output digital silence, which
should at least be encoded at a lower bitrate.

Anyone know?
