[Icecast] Edit icecast.xml while server running

I believe many Windows devs would just monitor the filesystem for changes to the config file, and then re-read it when it has changed.

Icecast2 will not magically re-read it. To do so you need to send a
SIGHUP. As windows does not have real, working signals there is no way
to let it re-read it with the current official version.
But I need to recommend against running Icecast2 (or any other server
software) on windows anyway.
