[Icecast] How do I list in YP? icecast2 ices0

I thought the YP code was going to be fixed to use less resources so it 
could be used with other stream formats.  It seems to be taking a long 

As it is now, Icecast2 is not a good solution for those wanting to be on 
a popular directory.  I am forced to recommend using Shoutcast to my 
clients so they can get onto a popular directory.  I would prefer to 
recommend Icecast2.

The directory at Xiph.org only lists Ogg streams - MP3 streams are
silently ignored.
