This is true for icecast, of course, but NOT for ices. ices2 is fairly closely 
tied to ogg, and doesn't use most of libshout (apart from the 
connection/authentication bits). Also, you'd want live encode support for 
speex in ices as well, since I can't imagine streaming prerecorded speex 
being widely used.

You should, of course, be using RTP for speex, not HTTP, anyway.
