I'm not aware that icecast would out of the box support xspf.
It should be no problem though to put together a xslt to output all
available mountpoints in one XSPF.

I'll hack something up tonight. I've done quite a few xslt files for
icecast in the past.

This might need some more discussion though. e.g. what does the spec say
about metadata? should we output current song metadata plus the stream
metadata or only  the stream metadata.

Do we keep this discussion on the general icecast mailing list or do we
move to the -dev list?

Cheers

Thomas
