Implemenation fo case list for community users via plugins

I'd like to implement a plugin which displays a list of public cases for a community user as follows:
- The community user can view public cases just as he can with a ticket
- There is no editing possible, but an e-mail link with predefined subject to add information to a case (via e-mail) is shown
- The community user can see a list of cases with the following criteria: the case has a ticket and belongs to a project which has public submission activated and also belongs to a group common with the user

I did implement this functionality in FB6. Now, using the plugins, what I don't see is how I could add a "main menu entry" or replace the "List" functionality for community users. The rest is not so much of a problem because I just get the data via API and transform it to a nice list via XSLT. So, is there a way to achieve the main menu thing?

Unfortunately this isn't yet possible.  Adding more hooks into the UI is on our roadmap for a future version of the Plugin architecture.

For now you could work around it by using some JavaScript that adds the link to the top.  If you do this, however, we can't guarantee backwards compatibility so you'll have to be careful about testing against all newer versions.

Thanks for the reply, even if it doesn't solve my issue.

Basically, I'd be happy already if I could wither control the page shown here:

That would be a nice and easy solution.
