We have two plugins in the Purple Plugin Pack
(http://purple.guifications.org/trac/wiki/PluginPack) that address this. One is
called Group Message, and it allows messaging everyone in a single group. The
other is called Broadcaster, and it allows messaging everyone on your buddy
list. Both plugins are contact-aware. Neither plugin builds by default, nor is
either plugin included in any of our binary distributions, however.
