The default ices.conf.dist file from the source distribution contains:
      <!-- Header protocol to use when communicating with the server.
           Shoutcast servers need "icy", icecast 1.x needs "xaudiocast", and
       icecast 2.x needs "http". -->
      <Protocol>http</Protocol>

I haven't checked the code to see if this is used for anything, though...
