I think it's worth pointing out that the Winamp vorbis input plugin will
work with ancient versions of winamp - I have it with winamp 2.64.

The easiest way to provide both, assuming you have the clock cycles, is to
use Oddsock's Stream Transcoder (http://transcoder.sourceforge.net).  It
will tune into one of your streams and transcode it and send it to your
other server.
