I think an interesting alternative for a GUI would be a XUL interface. I once saw a XUL interface for the Amarok music collection, and it was very neat.
I don't know a lot about the internals from Icecast and the like, but it would be really cool if it would be possible to use your software with StreamTranscoder. (Have a look at this: http://www.oddsock.org/tools/streamTranscoderV3/) I think it's important to be able to split up streams, f.ex. to offer users with a low bandwidth a resampled stream with a lower quality.
Though, the problem is, if you want to be compatible you propably will have to abandon any direct interaction with the actual streaming server, and i don't know if that is in your interest.
- XSPF playlist output format by default - Amarok (http://amarok.kde.org) compatibility => XSPF as input format
- generation of xml config file for Ices
- hourly news / logo / commercial support - scheduling differents playlists at different timeboxes (e.g. dub from 8-10, rock from 10-12, ...)
