client-time-limit is fine as a name for the option. And yes - you should add a 
mount-specific version of this option - this is a good example of the sort of

We're always happy to look at patches (whether we'll actually accept it, of 
course, depends on things like "is this a good idea", and "is the code of 
reasonable quality"). Please send your patch (when complete) to the 
icecast-dev mailing list.
