The script playlist runs a program (can be anything executable) and that
just sends to it's standard output a series of filenames (typically
absolute paths) of ogg files to play.  Each filename is read and is used
to find a file to play, anfter that has finished then another filename
is read.

ices has no way of telling you whats been used to play streams as that
is inside icecast, there is practically no feedback from icecast. It
sounds like you want something from icecast itself.
