[Icecast] elegant way of re-encoding?

I have a single stream going to my icecast server, encoded in hi-quality
ogg. goal is to serve hi- and low quality ogg and mp3 streams,
re-encoded from the single hi-quality ogg stream.
encoding all from e.g. oddcast simultaniously is not an option.
it would be easier if source-streams would be static and always named
the same .. unfortunately they are not. if so, I could define simple
configs for streamtranscoder (if I understood the use of
streamtranscoder correctly ;)
so, what I'm looking for is a way to re-encode every stream which is
sent to the icecast server, as soon as it is started.
this could be done with streamtranscoder and a looped bash script
around, that looks if there is a source, if so it starts the re-encode.
Is there an elegant way, better than a bash script? maybe a plugin for
the icecast server itself?
or, where to find out more about?
