The easy solution is to just ensure the symbol names don't clash. 
The good solution is to make a libshout that can handle both.

I suspect that this is a very rare situation - it's useful to use both
the old and new versions of a library in the same program, but they're
completely incompatible in terms of what they do. 

If you can think of a way to add mp3 support to libshout2 without needing
_any_ source changes to existing mp3 streaming programs, that'd be good.
If it means minor changes to the new vorbis streaming programs, that's ok
 - that's why we're still pre-alpha :-)
