That's what I do when I want to send an audible alert to the user of a
console based program. It's then up to the user's terminal to do
whatever the user wants. Printing a BEL character has the added
advantage that it plays nicely with programs that are run remotely
(through ssh sessions and the like).

Personally, I'm usually in a screen session, inside either an xterm or
over an ssh link, and have visual bells turned on so I can see the
alerts, even when they pop up in another screen.
