No, sorry, didn't mean to imply that it was. I've been happily using
liveice for a while to do this. I'm moving to ices because I don't
need all the live DJ stuff, ices seems to use a lot less CPU, and the
playlist management is infinitely better in ices, since that is what
it was designed around. But liveice actually works pretty well for
me, my reasons are frankly moral rather than practical :)

what did they not understand? It seemed pretty straightforward to me,
so I'm not likely to know how to improve it :)

Ices configuration is in xml, I've just made it that you can have
multiple <ices:Stream> sections.
