Well, have you tried grabbing a stream with wget? Works perfect. So 
again: It's easily downloadable, all icecast-content. Or did I get 
something wrong?

Only good solution in my eyes would be to use rtp/rtps or mms:// or 
similar as streaming-protocols. However, nobody jet tried to 
implement something like that afaik :-((
