"Friends" are not mentioned anywhere in the core patch I've described. That would be handled by the socnet plugin.
Actually an exchange Blaine and I once had in the forums is more appropriate to "departments" at a company.
Using my proposed patch, the socnet plugin could implement friends for social networking plugins to use and a completely separate "departments" plugin could use the same core group extensions to implement what you are talking about.
