Yes you can.  Sawmill (for one) supports window groups so you can eg. kill
or minimise all windows in a group in one go.

Also, most WMs support multiple desktops - if you want to group all your
windows from an app together you can stick them on a seperate desktop top
- but unlike WiW you are not restricted to doing this.
