Menu items can be added to the bottom of the toolbox in the left hand menu (hopefully consistently in the various standard skins) using MonoBookTemplateToolboxEnd (implemented in MonoBook.php). This is used by a few extensions (about 11 if I am counting correctly in the MediaWiki SVN repo).
This does not work in the Modern skin and other skins - because the hook is skin specific. Adding it somewhere all skins can benifit from it is needed.
It would be better to have a general hook instead of a skin-specific one.
fixed in r34040 by adding a new hook, SkinTemplateToolboxEnd. the extensions will need to be updated.
