i can promise MuSE will support oggvorbis streaming, hoping to satisfy
as much people liveice does, offering realtime live input mixing on top
of 6 bitstreams. There are good probabilities that some radios in italy
invest in further development of MuSE, which paused for nearly 2 months.

my plans are to include libshout1 and 2 to let streaming with both
codecs from MuSE. i'll wait for a stable release of icecast2 to start
development, so jack i hope you'll enjoy this summer and keep up the
good work!

btw i noticed GStreamer is coming up as a reliable and robust framework,
so i guess it'll be also a great solution for vorbis streaming.
