Custom links on New / Edit Account screen

I've come across an app called postcode anywhere that provides a lookup link next to the standard Postal code field on the New Account page. http://appexchange.salesforce.com/listingDetail?listingId=a0330000002dQlnAAE

The New Account page is not overriden in this case, and is the standard out of the box New Account page.

 

I've tried creating a custom inline VF page that provides that same functionality, but the page layout only dictates what is displayed on the detail page, and not the edit nor the new pages.  That is , as far as custom VF, buttons, and links are concerned.

 

My question is, how is it possible to display the custom link on the new page, short of overriding the new button to display a custom VF page.  I'm assuming the postcode anywhere app is using javascript wizardry, but perhaps I'm missing something here.

 

Thanks,

- James.
