[icecast] Icecast 2 for Live365 MP3 Relaying

maybe I'm wrong, but I thought that with icecast1.x, when a client 
connected it was sent the data as fast as it could take it, which I thought 
required the server to maintain a buffer of the source data... This meant 
that if a client connected to a 32kbps stream and if that client was on a 
broadband connection (capable of speeds much higher than 32kbps) then on 
first connect (usually when clients pre-buffer) the server would send the 
data as quickly as the client could read (I also am assuming that clients, 
when they pre-buffer, also follow similar logic but in reverse - they read 
as fast as they can until they fill their pre-buffer)...

I know that icecast2 doesn't do any of this "bursty sending/reading on 
client connect", but I guess I thought icecast1.x did...I know shoutcast 
does...but like I said, I could be wrong..
