Actually you should be able to retrofit that to older versions too. If,
like Dean, you really want to stick to that for some reason.
All it needs is to copy two files:
They go into the webroot.
If you want to do that, please use the status-json.xsl from Icecast
2.4.1 (or until I release it within the coming days, from trunk)

As far as I understand python works quite well with JSON, so that would
probably simplify things
