[icecast] combined mp3 and vorbis stream

Thanks for that Scott. I've got two streams running now, one just reads
my ogg files from a playlist as before, the other one reads input from
stdin which is created by a script like this:

        for i in `cat /etc/icecast/mp3.playlist`
        mpg123 -w - $i | ices /etc/icecast/ices_stdin.xml 
where ices_stdin.xml uses the stdin module rather than the playlist

Very simple but it took me a while to figure out.

If there's nothing with the Ice software that's this versatile, you'll have to write a small shell script, which does something like calls ogg123/mpg123 and outputs decoded audio.
