It shouldn't be too hard.  To do it right would entail extending the
current ogg format plugin to handle multiple codecs.  This isn't too bad
if you restrict it to one codec per ogg stream only.  Ices will take a
similar extension to libshout.

And finally,  you'd need to add support to ogg123 or to some other
player, and this is where you will run into trouble.

We tried to make icecast 2.x tools easier to extend in this way.
Unfortunately we have no control over braindead player architectures :(
