[Icecast] 2.3 intro file enhancement

I just installed 2.3 on my two production machines. Everything looks
good so far. I'm really liking the intro file!
I'd really like to see this enhancement. Is there any reason this
couldn't be done? Given a list of short intro files, I'd like to see
Icecast either serve a random file on client connect or perhaps just
rotate through the choices consecutively which would probably give a
random enough appearance to the clients. This could, perhaps, be
achieved by allowing multiple <intro> tags per mount.
There are several clips I have that I would love to use as introductions
to the music stream I run. It would be nice to have a little more
variety so that clients don't hear the same intro every time they are
I'll probably hack around on the source and try to make this work for
myself and I'd be happy to provide a patch if I get it working well.
Just wondering if there's any reason it would be more difficult than it
sounds at first. :-)
