According to wp-admin/includes/dashboard.php::wp_dashboard_quick_press(),
there are no filters directly on that output.

That function is called by wp_add_dashboard_widget() which uses
add_meta_box(). It doesn't look like there are any filters on either
of those functions either, so it probably makes sense to figure out
where the best place for some filtering is and have that implemented.
