Audio Media halting background app playback.

I have an app that plays an audio notification (using the in-app media storage). It works great but if the user is listening to a podcast or song in the background, it halts that playback. I was wondering if there's some way to avoid this, similar to how Google Maps is somehow able to provide its audio notifications by temporarily pausing podcast playback or playing over existing music playback on the device. I'm guessing this might be more a feature request than anything, but wanted to be sure there wasn't an option I'd just overlooked.
