that's exactly what it does!

from http://www.icecast.org/ezstream.php:

"ezstream is a command line utility...It enables you to stream mp3 or vorbis files to an icecast server..."

u can define a single mp3/vorbis-file or a whole m3u-playlist, which is then repeatedly sent to the icecast server...
