A plugin could be written to do this, it would just need to listen to the
signed-on connection signal, call purple_find_buddies(account, NULL) to
get the list of buddies, and then send them each a message.
But I think this would incredibly quickly get very annoying (especially if
anyone using this plugin has a poor network connection, or if you give
your friend an alias they may not know about or you may not want to share
