Thanks for everybody's reply. After doing a little more research, it turns out 
what I *really* want is the ability to treat KAddressbook categories as 
distribution lists without actually manually creating those distribution 
lists. That way, I can easily type in "Friends" on the "To:" field. Anyway, 
I've filed a bugreport (86944), so please vote for it if you like the idea.
