[development] Interacting with Views Tabs via code

Not sure if this is the best place, but I've come across an
interesting problem and I'm not certain how to proceed. I have a 3
tabbed view (you can actually see the live version here: http://livestrongaction.org/featured_dedications)
. I want to add a 4th tab, and thought this would be simply adding a
custom module with hook_menu and a MENU_LOCAL_TASK. However, it
appears that views is doing something that prevents hook_menu from
interacting there. I next thought I would try hook_menu_alter, but I
can't see the three tabs being rendered in the &$items array passed
into that hook.
Now, I could just intercept this at the theme level and add what I
needed, but that seems kludgy. I'm tempted to move the entire view
into code, but not sure how that would necessarily help this
situtation. I may ask on IRC< or the views support queue, but
thought this list may be able to give me a few leads.
Any idea how to get a menu tab to render on a tabbed view? Hope I'm
not missing something obvious. Thanks in advance.
