One way to do it, off the top of my head, would be to modify groups.c.
 Specifically, change the function G_mess_to_groups so that, when it
receives a list of groups that includes your test group name, it
behaves as if it the list includes the private group name of the
client you want to receive all the messages.  This should be the
minimal change to achieve the result you desire, although it will
require some minor hacking, and recompilation if you change the group
and private group names you're working with,
