I wish I knew more about coding at times like these :-)

I've been looking at the source for the FreeBSD pcm / audio stuff to
figure out if the data coming off of it is just left sample word / right
sample word or something, and figure if it would be possible to "demux"
the two and forward it to the lame sessions.

I was thinking maybe there is some way to make a psudeo device that points
to left and right indepedantly, then two darkice sessions could be
launched. This would make it application independant, but presents
problems of opening the sound device I would imagine. Only one program can
open /dev/pcm at a time.

I'm going to talk to a friend that knows coding and this type of stuff to
get his input.
