No. First of all, Qt has always been more than a GUI-library. It's a C++
development framework, and Audacious' core libs will likely use it where
they have used GLib before. I doubt the devs will limit themselves to the
C++ standard libs, so all GUIs and their dependencies could be put into
plugins. That's these, so one could change the different UIs at run-time,

  $ rpm -ql audacious-plugins|grep -i ui

but libaudgui depends on both Qt and GTK, for example. And if both
GUIs are enabled, one needs to run "audacious --qt" to start the Qt UI.
