Yes, but as far as I know it doesn't offer utf8 support either.

I was thinking that it would be really nice if I could use gnus to
interface beagle-search, since beagle indexes my emails correctly (and
find them really fast). Since emacs 23 there is xesam support, but I
never succeeded in integrating emacs+xesam+beagle. And even if I do,
I'm not so sure I could make gnus use xesam as a search engine.

Of course, all of this can be coded, but I was looking for quicker solution.
