You can write a script making a menu.
Or you can make a marking menu.

I suggest making a marking menu because its built right into maya.
Aply it to the hotbutton of alt+x and/or alt+z.
Works awesome from me.

It wont always be floating by your model, but it will be a insta click and mouse drag away.

You can get so fast with marking menu's that people watching wont even see what command you just executed, just a bunch of little black lines and a flash..hehe
Good fun and efficient those things are.

You might and probably already use marking menu's, and if so ingnore my reply! :)

you van create a menu in the main menu bar like this:

menu -p MayaWindow -l "Menu Description" -to 1 menu Name;

-to 1 makes the menu dettachable.

then u just have to add items to this menu, like this:

menuItem -label "Item Description" -a "Annotation" -echoCommand true -command "command or proc to execute" internalMenuItemName;
