It's an intresting idea.  I almost implemented this years ago when I
wanted to do a "scan" channel.  Basically it would give you 30 seconds
of each stream and loop.

I'm not sure sophisticated logic is really appropriate in Icecast, but
perhaps this can be done with a bit of scripting.  Maybe it's time to
put a python interpreter into icecast like we sort of did back in the
1.2/1.3 days.  Then users could implement logic like this without us
having to code it up everytime wanted some slight tweak like this.
