Popups for multiuser chat

today I have presented how to chat with pidgin at my workplace. One open 
question is whether it is possible to send a message to multiple 
contacts at once.

As far as I have understood, this feature is not supported because it 
might be abused by spammers.

Chatrooms would be another acceptable solution for us. Then we would 
implement a chatroom where all of our users could join persistently. The 
only problem with that is that you don't get notified when there is no 
open window/tab for the chatroom.

Would it be possible to configure pidgin so that it reopens windows for 
chatrooms when there is activity in the chatroom?
