When referring to a group of people, is "of who" ever correct, or will it pretty much always be "of whom?" I know about the substituting "he or him" trick to see which one makes sense, but sometimes the sentence is phrased in a way that makes it hard to do so.

IMO after a preposition you always use whom. I´m almost sure that of who is unidiomatic
