No, but a wrapper (called e.g. beep-media-player) could be provided by
the package to do so if such a configuration is present. By providing a
wrapper, it allows for people to keep their BMP config seperate from
Audacious if they elect to keep BMP around by taking the source package
and building it for themselves locally.
