[Icecast] Another relay question...

I currently have 3 mountpoints, 128, 56 and 24.  I'm using darkice as 
the source and I'm relaying to another server running icecast2.  I'm 
assuming that darkice is using lame for transcoding the bit-rates on 
the fly and sending 128k/s + 56k/s + 24k/s to the relay host... which 
is using a lot of bandwidth on the source network (which I don't have 
much to spare).  Is there any way to just send one 128k/s 
mountpoint and have the relay side transcode to the bitrates and go 
from there, that way I'm saving 80k/s of upload from the source 
The stream randomly starts to glitch out every once and awhile and 
I'm trying to fix it.  Any pointers would be greatly appreciated.
