[Icecast] Geoblocking on Icecast stations (radionomy)

Hi,

I stumpled upon Icecast, but I effectively can only play few stations
because somehow most of the stations that I'm interested in use the
radionomy service. After some research I found out that I'm not the
only one and that this company is blocking many countries worldwide:
https://www.google.com/search?q=this+radio+station+is+not+available+in+your+country+site:board.radionomy.com

Any chance to add a filter that filters out all stations relying on
radionomy? I'm not planning on using my university's VPN for streaming
music and it's quite a hassle finding a station that actually works.

As the premise of the Xiph.Org Foundation is to "support and develop
free, open protocols and software to serve the public, developer and
business markets", it seems like a rather odd choice that one would
include radio stations that rely on a service that blocks out a good
deal of the worldwide population.

Best regards,
Gernot Meyer
