[Icecast] EZStream questions

I just installed the latest EZStream and have a couple of what I feel are
probably pretty stupid questions.
1. How to disable metadata sending. The manual page suggests that this
is possible but I lose track about halfway through the section on
metadata. If someone can demistify this for me it'd be great, as I don't
really want listeners to see the filename of my files.
2. I had EZStream fail to run today because a config file was "group or
world writeable". Why should it care? Surely it's not EZStream's job to
enforce security policies. If there's a good reason then maybe print a
warning, but don't refuse to run. I might have good reasons for group
access to my config files. In addition, given that EZStream is probably
best suited to a hands-off operation, this kind of thing really shouldn't
make it fail. It failed to start on time for me today because of this and
I was left scratching my head for a few minutes. Fortunately I was right
in front of my PC when it happened otherwise a program would have failed
to air at all.
