I don't think this is worth implementing. All packaged versions should be using GTK2. If you're building from source, you should already know what toolkit you're using.

It might be very useful for all the users who don't compile Audacious, i.e. distro users and Windows users.

For instance Debian builds Audacious with GTK2 ( https://packages.debian.org/sid/audacious-plugins ) while Fedora 29 uses Qt ( https://src.fedoraproject.org/cgit/rpms/audacious-plugins.git/tree/audacious-plugins.spec ).
