Audacious supports wavpack out of the box. I have an unofficial port of
bonk and shorten on my computer which I can package on request; and
there was at one time a port of xmms-ac3dec to Audacious, but it doesn't
work with the new plugin API.

At any rate, the ecosystem for Audacious is pretty much the same as it is
for XMMS.
