The mount details apply to the appropriate stream at that mountpoint,

An m3u is a playlist format not a stream, so having a <mount> refer to
an .m3u is just wrong. The same applies to the fallback-mount, you can't

moving users manually from one mount to another is easy enough, just
look at the /admin/stats.xsl page
