the header-timeout is the time icecast will wait for the HTTP request 
headers from any client.  Clients in this context can be any request 
(source client, fserve client, HTTP request) pretty much anything that 
connects to the icecast main port.  Although possibly a bit misleading, I 
think we consistently use the term "client" to mean anything that makes a 
connection TO icecast.
