Well, since ices 2.x only has ogg output, then yes, you'd have to do
decoding.

As far as sending MP3 output to icecast2, ices 0.x already does this and
there seems little point to me in hacking up another tool to do a job that
an existing tool is already doing.  Now, as I said, if there are issues
with ices 0.x and icecast2, then that's a bug which needs to be fixed.
