Does openbsd's pthread library not have pthread_detach? Or is it the 
extra underscore at the start there that's causing problems? Dealing
without pthread_detach would be painful, though not impossible.

ices2 is most likely what you want - it's very stable, does both live encoding
and reencoding, and various other things. It doesn't yet do resampling
- I've been WAY short on time lately and I'm going away soon, so I 
won't be able to add it, but someone else should be able to do so 
pretty easily, if anyone is interested. It also doesn't have crossfading,
and won't - crossfading annoys the crap out of me on radio, having it
on internet radio as well would just annoy me even more. Scripting
support (like in ices1) for more general playlist manipulation support
(though you can do this externally without requiring explicit support)
will get added at some point, it's actually really easy to add - but again,
I don't have the time at the moment for new features.
