Summary: Buddy pounce for grouped contacts

Initial Comment:
It would be very useful to be able to apply buddy
pounces to whole contacts, not individual buddies. For
a person who you do not know which protocol they will
sign on with next, being able to pounce their contact
will apply the pounce to the first account they use
within that contact.

The main concern is that the pounce window is not
geared up to this. The user selector right now is
protocol+ID. I don't know how possible it is that the
user selector system could be expanded to have a pseudo
"contacts" protocol for selecting grouped contacts
outside of any protocol. This is not needed for
selecting a target when right-clicking on a contact and
selecting Add Buddy Pounce, but the pounce window will
not be able to show the target.

May be a checkbox 'For all buddies in the contact' would do?
May be even show the list of buddies in the contact when the
user checks the box?

I agree with the original submission. I don't know what this
pseudo-protocol thing is about, and that doesn't seem like a
good idea. But anyway, patches are welcome. If you want to
try to code this, talk with me on IRC (or something) about
the details.

I like the idea of having a pseudo protocol for all
contact-groupings. that would make for the clearest defined
behaviour, ie you know if you are selecting an account or a
