I've gotten Mint Audio, MacAMP, and Audion 3 to all play streams -
however, they all have weird problems.  As I recall, both Mint Audio and
MacAMP i had to manually enter the stream URL - it wouldn't open a .m3u
to play an Ogg stream.  And Audion 3 is demo-ware commercial product.

I think we should all be recommending Whamb! - if it gets enough usage
the authors will likely improve Ogg support and thus send a nice message
to Apple about their refusing to support Ogg in iTunes.
