all patches/feature enhancements for ezstream should be posted to this 
listserv (icecast-dev) as ezstream is part of the icecast project.  Keep in 
mind that ezstream was created to be just that (easy) and even reencoding 
was added with a bit of controversy of wether or not it belongs in there at 
all..  Ezstream was written as a replacement for "shout" which was a simple 
(and horribly broken) program which showed how to use libshout.  If you are 
looking for a fully featured console-based streamer, both ices 0.4 (mp3) 
and ices2 (vorbis/theora/speex) are much better choices.  This is why you 
don't find many playlist features, a web interface, or other features that 
other streamers tend to have.  I don't mean to discourage anyone from 
extending ezstream (heck, that's why it was written) and all extensions do 
need to be posted and published, however I am very careful about adoption 
into the main ezstream program.
