I just say I have to agree here.. :)

If sonique could source streams, and didn't have such a "hip" interface, 
I'd use it.  If I had the time, I'd try and come up with a plugin to source 
streams from one of the other tools like sonique or freeamp.. but there are 
a lot of things I'd do if I had the time. ;)
