Well, if I finish my flac support you can have it.  I guess it's still
not friendly to encorporate other people's changes against their will,
even if the GPL means they have given implicit permission.

Right now, with a modified libshout2, ogg123 (few players work with
http://localhost/music.flac, and most assume all http .ogg is vorbis),
hacked icecast, icecast and shout using guesswork instead of libflac for
samplerate and header work, icecast can stream flac.  But ogg123 doesn't
support concatenated flac or ogg/flac files yet so you can only listen
to one song at a time.  When it works, a good solution for home
lan-jukebox applications.
