Under "People" in left hand pane, can you create "groups" to sort teams and departments?

In AIM and Trillian, you can create "groups" where you can sort your contact list into "friends", "co-workers", etc.  Does HipChat have that capability and if so, how do you do it?  If not, can this be taken into consideration for a future release?  We are using HipChat cloud with the Window client ver 4.29.1662.

I would like to make teams/groups in my People list too. Example: "Design", "Support", etc. These teams would only be for my eyes. I work with a lot of people in different teams and this would certainly help keep my People list from getting too long. Teams should function like people, where you can drag them to reorder.
