[Icecast] Icecast on port 80 and proxy servers that stay connected after user disconnects.

Well, as long as it's only you listening, you can always kick yourself 
through the admin interface.  But there's realy not a lot you can do.  I've 
seen mention of and possibly patches for time-limited listening, but you 
don't really want to place an arbitrary limit on connect time without 
really wanting that feature.

Personally, unless you really need to run it on port 80, I wouldn't.  I'm a 
believer of services being on the ports they were meant for, and this is a 
good example of why this is a good philosophy.  There's no way for the 
proxy server to know not to cache it, unless you can tell it not to cache 
certain MIME types (which also assumes you have the ability to configure 
it, which I'm guessing you don't).
