[Icecast] OpenSource Nicecast project - anyone interested?

Hi all,

I'm a newcomer to this list, but I thought people may be interested in my 
current project, an open-source equivalent of Nicecast.  It's intended to 
let you stream live audio over your home network, and is currently working 
nicely between my Powerbook and Linux PC.  It works by using the Soundflower 
dummy audio driver to grab all audio from the Powerbook, then my program 
uses CoreAudio to record and convert this to PCM, before sending it to 
ices2, which encodes the stream to Vorbis and sends this to my local icecast 
server.  I want to streamline this whole process further, hopefully removing 
Soundflower and ices2 from the equation.

It's really hacky code at the moment, as it started life as a simple utility 
for my own purposes,  but it seems that other people may want to do the same 
thing.  This is really just a quick poll to see if enough people are 
interested to make it worth setting up a website and CVS access for the 
project, so please let me know if you are.
