ummm.  Well, not at the moment.  At one stage, Michael did say that this
would be a desirable feature but that he wasn't personally interested in
coding it.  If all your files are 44100Hz stereo, you could possibly do
something with the stdinPCM fascility.  hmmm.

Question though - why do you want to broadcast in ogg if all your files are
in MP3?  I merely ask because you could simply use icecast2 with ices 0.x
(CVS) and stream in MP3, re-encoding to 256KBPS or whatever.
