Rather than (re)write CM code, look at KDE's Window/Application
settings.  I'm not 100% sure you can do what you're after with them, but
they're worth investigating as they enable you to overrule default
behaviour.  Hopefully, one of the settings will allow you to override
the grouping together of multiple compose windows.

Right click the compose window's title bar, then select "More Actions >
Special Window Settings".  You'll need to match on Compose Window
(substring) and then start fiddling with options that look as though they
might affect grouping/tabbing of compose windows.
