[Icecast] Best source for creating multiple streams

With IceS2 this is easily accomplished by copying the 'ices-playlist.XML' file (I have 3 copies in the same directory with different names). Then define a new mount point in the xml file and point  to a different play list file within the XML ( random can be enabled in the xml).  Once this is complete, in terminal start ices2 with each xml.

~ $ sudo ices2 /media/music/ices-playlist_s.XML
~ $ sudo ices2 /media/music/ices-playlist_mylist.XML
~ $ sudo ices2 /media/music/ices-playlist_classic.XML

I also define different log files for each stream.

Hi there. I'm trying to find a way to create multiple streams with one source client. Each of the streams should read from a different playlist file and randomly pull and play songs from the file. I know how to do this with a single stream with clients such as IceS and Ezstream, but I don't see a way to specify different playlists for each mountpoint. I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions for a source I could use to do this?
