How to extend the Event Options Menu

Path Finder

I want to extend the Event Options Menu which is located beside the result records.
The idea is to add a link containing some data from the result record beside which the menu is located.
When clicking on the extra menu item the link should open in a new browser tab.

Is this achievable with relatively limited effort?

Example for Illustration

I a result record contains the field userid then the Event Options Menu should contain an item Display in XYZ which would invoke a URL like https://some_domain/display_user?date=20140203&userid=12434233433
The date would be derived from time and userid from a field in the results, e.g. customerid.

While the Event Options Menu is appealing for this enhancement, I am open to other suggestions too

The HTML of that menu (without any modifications):

<div class="outerMenuWrapper splShadow splMenu splMenu-primary" style="display: none; top: 411px; left: 243px;">
  <ul>
    <div class="innerMenuWrapper">
      <li class=""><a href="/en-US/etb?sid=1399554203.68&amp;offset=0&amp;namespace=search" 
      tabindex="-1" class="menuItemLink" target="_blank">Build Eventtype</a></li>
      <li class=""><a href="/en-US/ifx?sid=1399554203.68&amp;offset=0&amp;namespace=search" 
      tabindex="-1" class="menuItemLink" target="_blank">Extract Fields</a></li>
      <li class=""><a href="/en-US/app/search/show_source?sid=1399554203.68&amp;offset=0&amp;latest_time=" 
      tabindex="-1" class="menuItemLink" target="_blank">Show Source</a></li>
    </div>
  </ul>
</div>

The answer to this question is actually the same as for the field menu: this can be achieved using workflow actions.

How about achieving the same using drilldowns?
