Is anybody working on this, or should I just on the dev-list and throw 
in the suggestion?  If Icecast were to implement this, then Realaudio 
server would have very little in terms of most usage over Icecast.  It 
would easily allow a large library of audio to be accessible, but not 
downloadable, for many people, with no sideeffects or problems.

For example, it is difficult and not always reliable to seek in a Vorbis 
stream when using HTTP-push (is that what it is when you just download 
it and listen to it via Winamp - pseudo-streaming?)
