mp3 and ogg can be streamed via icecast, and because no encoding goes on
in icecast the mountpoints and options for those mountpoints can be
stated generically, so besides the mountpoint ending in .ogg (really
because of listening clients) there's no difference. at the icecast

ices2 will produced ogg streams and ices 0.3 will produce mp3, but as
for the particular configuration, that will depend on what your
requirements are, eg live or playlist
