ices 0.3 remains a recommended source client if you need mp3 support.

Mixed format support isn't possible. Mixed format in the _source_ files would,
of course, be possible - the source client would have to transcode them all
to the same format.
ices2 is unlikely to ever support mp3 - one day, it might _optionally_ support
reading mp3, but streaming as ogg (transcoding, obviously), but even that
isn't particularly likely unless someone else decides to implement it.
ices 0.3 works fine - just use it!
