Makes sense.  I've gone ahead and converted my collection to be purely ogg
(all the easier when someone else has written the perl script!).

I'm using it with a web-based front end that both plays the song with ogg123
and streams it with ices.  I've been finding though that because it only
streams one song at a time (so you can edit the playlist on the web without
it having to change the streaming list), xmms and ogg123 disconnect after
each song.

My C knowledge is rudementary, but I can make minor edits.  Is there a
function I could add a delay to so a connected client isn't booted as soon
as there are no sources, and then that client has the new source fed to it
once the new source starts?
