I don't know about all that, I think that shoutcast works just fine in a live situation, its similar to live radio, just tell your listener to turn down their radio or turn it off when they are on the air.

I understand their concern as I have experience with other servers which do not buffer, and the connect times are much better with shoutcast with the delay. If it were configurable then it would lose that quality. Besides you can never get to real time due to the time spent encoding, packet lag the internet often experiences and whatnot.
