[Icecast] Multiple mountpoints and ports

Hi Geoff,

My use case is that I have put an icecast server in the cloud. I want to 
stream my stuff on one port and let my friend stream their stuff on a 
different port. I would worry that if they accidentally entered the same 
port as mine in the source client (eg Mixxx) - eg 
http://serverip:8000/mystream8000 and 
http://serverip:8000/friendsstream8001- it would screw up both our streams.

Basically I'm looking at this like a safety mechanism, particularly if I 
want to add a 3rd stream for another friend.
