Delphi actually exposes just such an API, which editors such as
Multi-Edit put to good use.  Whether that approach (and I don't know
the details) is appropriate for a standard/convention I'll leave to
others to debate.  In the more general case, it is, in fact, extremely
simple to invoke almost any other tool from Delphi by using the Tools
configuration dialog, which provides macros that expand to current
file, current line, current path, etc.
