I thought I'd jump in here and make a guess that the mp3 stream
is negligible to CPU usage, unless there is re-encoding necessary.
I've been running an icecast server (mp3 streamer) for a couple
years now, on my old Celeron 333Mhz box, and it is barely measurable,
since it's just doing file i/o and sending data at 128kbps (disk and
network thruput is about 100-1000 times that). :)
