How to display extra fields when performing a unified (global) search?

In the global/unified search tools (both for the search field in the top right - and when clicking through to the 'view all results'). The results displayed are basically just the record name with the search string highlighted.

However, for accounts, we have a large number that have the sane name and are differentiated by city and by a custom field (product type).

I would like to get those fields values appended to the displayed results - in both locations: the immediate dropdown from the search field - and the subsequent list of records when you 'view all results'.

Similarly, when displaying Contacts, if we could append the account, account city and account product type that would be great.

As an alternative, we could display the dropdown and just have the full list - but with the extra fields.

Any thoughts on how to do this?
