That would be nice, wouldn't it? Hey, it's already implemented! That's
why we have port-specific aliases. They're not really well documented,
patches to explain this a bit better would be appreciated. I'm also
not sure how well tested this is, I know I've never tried to use
shoutcast, because... well, I'd much rather use icecast :-)

Anyway, I think this should be possible just by configuring icecast,
no new features needed.
