We have supported this for years.  Right click on one buddy and hit 
"expand."  Then drag others into it.  You are creating an ordered list 
where the higher a buddy is in the list, the greater the preference 
pidgin will place on that buddy when selecting the most available one. 
That is, if two buddies in a single contact are equally available, 
pidgin will chose the higher one.
