[Icecast] query reg. streaming protocol

The most compatible implementation of the Shoutcast protocol I've seen, and 
I've not tried many open source solutions, is Supercast 
(http://supercast.sourceforge.net/).  It's written in Python.  Note that a 
newer version with title streaming support is in production at ACB Radio, 
but it's not on the SF project.  I must ask Matt about that.  And it 
doesn't have YP support.

Matt did some reverse engineering to get some of the stuff to work.  The 
shoutcast DSP works with it nicely, even showing the user how many 
listeners they have, etc. the way the nullsoft server apparently does.

Anyway, just thought I'd put that out as an opensource shoutcast 
implementation in case anyone wanted to look at it.
