yep, the config option is <playlistlog> and it goes in the <logging> 
section of the config. Here is the description from the docs :
"Into this file, a log of all metadata for each mountpoint will be written. 
The format of the logfile will most likely change over time as we narrow in 
on a standard format for this. Currently, the file is pipe delimited. This 
option is optional and can be removed entirely from the config file. "

I'd rather see people use this logfile rather than making icecast cache the 
last X metadata updates for each source connection so that it could display 
it on the status screen.
