From some heavy googling I have found some poeple who claim to have done it 
using esd, but I wanted to be sure that it couldn't be done with KDE and

Yeah, I could do that, but it wouldn't be very effective. We have a couple of 
terminals that we share, and we move around sometimes, so then I'd need to 
download the music again. Your next proposal would be better in that aspect.

This could be done. 
There are of course, easier ways than to tunnel the stream using SSH, but I 
wanted to see if it could be done. Never stop to be curious, eh? ;-)
If no one else can think of any way to tunnel the sound, then I'll probably 
settle for a apache server.

Thanks alot!
