 Log Message:
 Update to 2.3.0. Slightly based on PR 31558 by Eric Schnoebelen.
 **** New features for 2.3.0 ****
 - Streaming support for ogg speex, ogg flac, ogg midi
 - intro file support - per mount settable
    Intro files will play when a listener first connects to a stream.  This
    is designed for station jingles and the like.  If you don't broadcast
    in ogg vorbis, you must make sure the bitrate/samplerate/number of
    channels match up to your stream.
 - on-demand relays, global and per-relay settable
    On demand relays only connect to the relayed content when there are
    listeners attached to the relay.  This can save bandwidth in certain cases.
 - fallback to file, extends on the intro file handling.
    With this feature, you can specify a "fallback file" which will be played
    in a loop and sent your currently connected listeners in the event of a
    source client disconnect.  This means your listeners stay connected while
    you fix your disconnect problem.  Same rules regarding bitrate/samplerate/
    number of channels apply as with intro files.
 - new mount-level settings
    1. public, type/subtype, genre settings, stream description,
       stream url, stream name, bitrate (override what is sent from the source
    2. mp3 metadata interval
    3. on-[dis]connect scripts can be stated per-mount, invoked at source
       start/stop and take 1 arg which is the mountpoint.
 - New URL listener authenticator.
    This delegates your listener authorization to an external application.
    URL calls are made on listener connect/disconnect as well as source
    connect/disconnect.  It is meant for large broadcasters who have existing
    authentication systems that need to be integrated into.  Included is
    an example php-based application that can be used in conjunction with
    the url authenticator to manage a simple subscription-based broadcast.
 - HTPasswd authenticator uses in-memory structures now.
 - On demand files now can be fed through an authenticator
 - Update to admin/web xslt interface
 - Icecast can now be installed as a win32 service
 **** Fixes for 2.3.0 ****
 - real/helix works
 - win32 access log correct
 - stats client is stable now (curl -X STATS http://admin@host:port/)
 - show mountpoints on stats that are inactive but have an active fallback
 - more updates over HUP possible
 - improved stability under heavy load
 - moving clients will no longer sometimes deadlock the server
 - avoid small writes to reduce TCP overhead.
 pkg changes:
 Enable theora, speex. make libxml2 dependency explicit.
