Comment (by DJPaul):

 I have done some poking, as you can see from the commits. I have added a
 new patch, 5934.03.patch.

 I didn't like the idea of pre-filtering the AJAX response to get the Group
 ID (I'm not sure that would have worked, anyway), plus we needed some
 refactoring to let each component filter whether the mentions scripts
 should load or not, to better match what we try to do elsewhere in BP. I
 came up with an approach of storing the Group ID in the textarea as a data

 I do not believe we should add support to the legacy Group Forums unless
 someone has an extremely convincing argument otherwise.

 I also think that pre-caching the user's friends, even in a group,
 generally makes sense most of the time. Since mentions in groups will be
 new for 2.2, how about we leave this pre-cache as it currently is, and
 revisit for a future release (and see if we get any user feedback)?
