That doesn't really motivate writing a new client from scratch. You
can do that with the perl interface of xiph's ices2 already, although
it may grow messy as you add features. I can't resist encouraging you
to take a look at liquidsoap too, which is a script language for
building audio streamers. It is high-level and gives very much
flexibility. (Also, it isn't only about playing a sequence of files
but can do audio processing: sound effects, add, fade..)

But if you want to have fun coding a source client, I understand too :)
