Sorry, but I haven't rewritten any libraries! With the first version
poeple using shoutcast~ on win needed to have the additinal lame.dll
which contains the encoding stuff. The new version does the same thing
as the linux version, i.e. linking the lame stuff into the _final_
shoutcast~ file -> I haven't included any lame code into shoutcast~
sources!!! Have a look at the code to see what I mean...

Yes, but only a little bit. Using shoutcast~ and mp3write~ together
would result in mp3 encoding being done twice! This would _double_ CPU
