Icecast/SHOUTcast MP3 streaming client
This component uses HTTP to stream MP3 audio from a SHOUTcast/Icecast server.
IcecastClient fetches the combined audio and metadata stream from the HTTP server hosting the stream. IcecastDemux separates the audio data from the metadata in stream and IcecastStreamWriter writes the audio data to disk (discarding metadata).
Receive an Icecast/SHOUTcast stream, demultiplex it, and write it to a file:
pipeline( IcecastClient("http://126.96.36.199:80/stream/1049"), IcecastDemux(), IcecastStreamWriter("stream.mp3"), ).run()
The SHOUTcast/Icecast protocol is virtually identical to HTTP. As such, IcecastClient subclasses SingleShotHTTPClient modifying the request slightly to ask for stream metadata(e.g. track name) to be included (by adding the icy-metadata header). It is otherwise identical to its parent class.

Got a problem with the documentation? Something unclear that could be clearer? Want to help improve it? Constructive criticism is very welcome - especially if you can suggest a better rewording!
