That's the one.

The problem is that I have someone who insists on using the win32/winamp
combination as the source, and I'd rather use icecast as the server
instead of the nullsoft shoutcast implementation.
You say above that I'd need to run 3 copies of shoutcast on 6 ports to
handle 3 streams, so is it possible to use SHOUTCast send a single
stream to an icecast server?

Thanks, I'll give that a go for my own tinkering.
