Your best bet in such a case is to use an external solution.
I'd probably go with liquidsoap as that should be able to take the 
stream as is and just push it to the remote server.

Other software like roaraudio/RPLD, mpd, gstreamer, xmms2 etc would 
probably work too, but I'm not sure which can do it without putting the 
stream through a decode/encode cycle.

Cheers
