Yes, provide a fallback mountpoint (and a stream on that fallback - which 
could just be a simple looping playlist).

If you want to do more complex things that what 2.0 allows (fallbacks in 2.0 
are very limited), you might want to try the cvs version, which allows more 
complete/flexible fallback behaviour.
