You could do that by surgery on the keymap which is the value of the
[menu-bar] entry in the global-map, but that's _really_ ugly,
something like:

(let ((lst (lookup-key global-map [menu-bar]))
            (prev nil)
        (while lst
          (setq current (car lst))
          (when (and (listp current) (eq (car current) 'buffer))
            (setcdr prev (cdr lst))
            (setq buf-menu current))
          (setq prev lst
                  lst (cdr lst)))
        (define-key global-map [menu-bar buffer] buf-menu))

Can anyone think of a less ugly alternative?

You would need the emacs process that's already running to run a
server of _some_ kind: otherwise, how would it know to open a new
window?  To the best of my knowledge, the only standard servers that
come with Emacs are emacsserv and gnuserv.  You could conceivably hack
emacs to react to SIGUSR1, or somesuch, by opening a new window.  I
have no idea how hard/easy it would be.
