Hi Thomas, it looks very cool!

How hard is it to make it configurable? I can see pros and cons for both. If id have to pick one id leave it as is. I like that you can remove some addresses afterwards.

I think your current implementation is fine. It's intuitive. Exactly what id expect it to do. 

Some things for future work..

- obviously hooks so our plugins can get the info. My compose_addressbook plugin is dying for access :)
- maybe a site-wide setting on maximum number of entries in a group. Many SMTP servers will only allow so many recipients. I would not enjoy seeing people add 300 recipients to their groups and making them de facto mailinglists :)
