Actually, this sounds almost exactly like a Jabber transport that I've
been planning on creating.  This special transport would act just like an
email mailing list server, you could create lists like VisualBasic at list
and the "list" transport would broadcast the message to the list or you
could start up group chats.

I'd post more details, but I have a bunch of documents and proposals to
write that this would build upon, so I have to get those done first :)
