The way I understand it, this means there's not much developer interest.
So unless someone is prepared to write the code, you can probably forget
it.

Note that you could probably achieve the same by using the stdinpcm module
and a third-party decoder.  In some ways this is better because ices2
developers would otherwise have to worry about the whole issue of licensing
an MP3 decoder.
