I think it makes sense to add support for pipewire similar to alsa and pulseaudio.

The PipeWire support is fully implemented now and will be released with the next Audacious version.
PipeWire uses/offers the exact same API as PulseAudio, in other words PA plugin is 100% compatible and sufficient for PipeWire.
There's no need to have two plugins. You may rename it from "PulseAudio plugin" to "PulseAudio/PipeWire plugin" and that's it.

There's no need to complain about other's contributions. If you don't care for the new plugin, don't use it, simple as that.
We could also have said that the PulseAudio plugin was unnecessary because PulseAudio emulates ALSA, the ALSA plugin was unnecessary because ALSA emulates OSS, etc.
