I hope this is the right place to poste this. To add ICY support to the
httplib module you just have to add 2 lines and 2 charactesr! ;)
ICY is a streaming protocoll developed by nullsoft (shoutcast and
winamp). It's identically to HTTP/1.0 but the server sends ICY instead
of HTTP/1.0. Other differences are additional header fields, but that
hasn't to bother httplib.

To add ICY support to httplib simple replace at line 308 in httplib.py:
        if not version.startswith('HTTP/'):
        if version == 'ICY':
            version = "HTTP/1.0"
        elif not version.startswith('HTTP/'):

Now I can write a little stream-dumping ICY proxy. ;)
