Is it possible to add a tab to the attributes of existing tools.  For example,  if I grab the knife tool,  can I write a plugin that adds a tab to the knife tool with added functionality?

Thanks in advance.

I don't think that this is possible.  You can add plugins but not modify existing features/plugins.  There are ways to include the descriptions of existing objects (tools, objects, tags, etc in the A.M.) but you still have to handle the underlying functionality yourself.
