iTunes-style sharing plug-in for Winamp

Does anyone know of a plug-in for Winamp or a standalone app that implements iTunes-style music library sharing (i.e., streaming with no downloading, must connect individually, 5 stream limit, etc.)?

This would seem to be a decent means of sampling tunes without running into problems with the labels.

Any enterprising developers out there?

Shoutcast is cool but not quite the same. With iTunes sharing, you can browse and listen to a buddy's music library almost as if it is your own.

How is that different from the original request.. maybe I don't know iTunes enough.

That is the original request. Shoutcast is just internet radio. iTunes offers shared music libraries that are streamable but not (officially) downloadable.
