with the MuSE[1] you find in CVS[2], soon to be released as 0.7, you
should be able to do from commandline:

./muse -o -c -s myserver.mydomain.org -x mypass -n stream_name

to stream all the mp3 in that directory, without any GUI popping up

better if you do playlists (.pls or .pl or .m3u) if you want to stream
reading files from multiple directories.

anyway try out muse -h for a complete list of options

<p>it's still betaversion so, if you use it, i'm really happy to receive
feedback about bugs and ideas!
