Most of icecast doesn't care. However, some bits do, so it's neccesary to have 
some handling code in it for each datatype.

It would be _very_ easy to add support to icecast for streams of type 
"application/octet-stream" - i.e. a stream that icecast should just feed 
straight through without having any special handling for at all, then you 
could use that for your purposes.
