Brainstorm: sugarCRM v7 replacement for detailview custom code

In 6.5.x I had some textarea fields that were in effect lists.
in view.detail.php I would split those lists and create URLs to be displayed which were assigned to an ss and referenced in detailviewdefs.php effectively turning the taxtarea with the list into a list of URLs that the user could click on to open new windows/tabs and see the data.
This was viable because of the distinction between detail and edit view.

In 7.5.0.1 I can't manipulate things before they display because of the inline edit features that we don't want to loose, and we don't want to save the full URLs as they may change location in the future.

The only option I can think of is to use the field's content to build an intelligence pane of URLs or pull the data directly into the intelligence pane.... 

Just thought I'd throw this out there and see what others come up with as a potential solution.

thanks,
