the Raspberry Pi isn't exactly a powerful device. It is known for
limited IO power (which is relevant for Icecast2) and other shortages.

After saying that: the pi is actually a fully features system. I don't
see a problem beside the above for running Icecast2. I expect you to run
into the bottleneck of the Ethernet interface. I don't know what the
maximum throughput of the interface is but I'm interested in any load
test results. Running it with a few listeners is not a problem at all.
Many seem to do that.

Have fun!
