When you right-click in the left gutter of the Content Tree in the Content Editor, a really handy context menu appears with some "command shortcuts" (for lack of a better term).
Does anyone know where in the core database the "buttons" for this context menu are controlled?
Bonus points to anyone who can also tell me the real name for this thing, because I can't seem to find it anywhere.

You can add stuff here:
/sitecore/content/Applications/Content Editor/Context Menues/Default and seeing the path I would assume it is called a "Context Menu".
After your command and screenshot: you'll need to go here in the core database:
Apparently they are just called "Gutters". All existing ones have that name also in their namespace.

Sitecore PowerShell Extensions provides the ability to add commands to the "Gutter". Here is an excerpt from the book.
The Gutter integration allows for full flexibility of adding a gutter element.
Begin by adding a new script to the Gutters library.
Edit the script to create a new instance of
Sitecore.Shell.Applications.ContentEditor.Gutters.GutterIconDescriptor if the right conditions are met.
Set the Icon, Tooltip, and Click properties.
Return the gutter object
Rebuild the gutter integration from within the ISE.
Sync Library with Content Editor Gutter command
