[op25-dev] Streaming audio from OP25/Raspberry Pi

I had the very busy local feed (24 channels) running here for a couple 
of months and it seemed perfectly happy.  So I think the system may be 
more stable than one might suspect.

I may go to Broadcastify, but they don't want you to stream TAC 
talkgroups, and I'd like to include those (quiet as they are) for the 
couple of local departments I listen to.  So for now, anyway, I'm just 
streaming locally with Icecast.

(Does the Broadcastify DarkIce install as a Debian package, or does it 
do an out-of-dpkg install?  I wanted to stay with .debs wherever possible.)
