This may be interesting to some.

I recently discovered AllCast.com which has developed a p2p streaming 
solution.  Unfortunately they decided to use WMA due to it's video 
capability but hopefully they could be presuaded to switch to Vorbis 
later when Tarkin is available.  For audio though, it appears a good way 
to reduce bandwidth requirements at the broadcasting end and potentially 
provide for an unlimited number of listeners.  Maybe IceCast could 
implement the same sort of technology.
