XF 1.5 Adding tab to user_edit Admin template

What's the recommended way to add a tab to the Admin template "user_edit"? I see that there are "slots" like
<!-- slot: pre_preferences -->
...except I can't do a replacement on those because they each occur twice, once in the tab list and once where the corresponding tab pane is defined. I would need to put something different in each place, and I don't even think I can use a PHP callback for this as the replacement function only receives the matches as an argument, not the original template text.

You should use the slots, though it's not ideal that they're the same thing. Unfortunately, it won't be changed in 1.x at this point.

Realistically, you can match a little extra after the slot to make the match unique. (You would insert your value before what you matched then.)
