I have mp3s as input and can't convert them all. And since my 
listeners will ONLY use mp3-streaming I don't want the overhead and 
quality-loss of converting mp3 to ogg and later stream-transcode them 
from ogg back to mp3. That's not worth it.

So why can't support for mp3 be added to ices2? From a technical 
point, I mean? Somebody said "It's not and never will be". Any good 
reason for that? This is the only problem why I'm fiddling around 
with ices-0.2.3-cvsbuild (and not getting it to work, but thats 
another story).
