+1 on this. It's crazy that there's no reasonable LAN sharing solution for Winamp, built-in or 3rd party. And please don't even mention Winamp Remote.

WombatShare is actually quite nice despite no new development. However, it requires that the input plugin on the client support streaming. So if you use FLAC (like me) you're SOL because Winamp's FLAC input plugin doesn't support streaming (on the wishlist, but I doubt it will ever happen). Works well with MP3 though.

I've had to settle for doing all the library maintenance on one machine and using a batch file to copy it to other machines on my network. As long as all your media is on a shared folder mapped to the same drive letter on all the machines it works. Embarrassingly clunky, but better than nothing I guess...
