Ah, the ambiguous name dialog box

I would like to have some idea on how to handle the ambiguous name dialog box. When I type in the user's last name and either enter a comma or press enter, the ambiguous name dialog box appears as expected with three matching names. For example:


I would like to add some more information to this pop-up dialog. For example:

User1/orgunit/org (department1)
User1/orgunit/org (department2)
User1/orgunit/org (department3)

Is it possible? This would help identify users when many duplicate names exist.

From where does this dialog box appear? Is it part of the design? How we can customize this? Thanks in advance.
As far as I know, you cannot change the dialog box for the ambiguous names, it is part of the core client code.
