[Icecast] fallback to static mp3 file?

It would certainly be a useful feature for me and I guess others. The current solution with ezstream works but listeners all end up at the same (current) point in the mp3 file. With the mp3 file as a fallback each individual listener would want to start hearing it from the start. This might be more difficult to implement with the single-q that is in the current trunk code, I don't know.

About the status of the svn 2.1 trunk code. What is the status? I guess it's not a stable release? Or is it stable enough to use it in  a production system. If it is stable/mature enough I could start using it (with its extra features and bugfixes) in my production system. Any thoughts?
