The short answer is no.  The long answer is that if you have IM (instant 
messaging) contacts with a service such as MSN, Yahoo or XMPP then the service 
handles looking after your contacts.  If you have used an IM service before your 
contacts will appear when you sign on.

If you have not used a service before and you have 2000 IM contacts to add you 
are stuck with adding them manually (as far as I am aware).

I also believe that Gmail can import your contacts for email and those contacts 
are available on GTalk which you can connect to using Pidgin.
