I often approach situations like this with so called "Monkey Patches":
I replace or enhance classes or methods during startup (triggered
by some startup event).

This may not be optimal but allows me to solve my problems without
tight coupling with the core developpers who usually do not have
my problems and tend not see them as very high priority.
