Yes, sort lines plugin can be an example how to do it.

Another option is to patch the code calling custom tools and allow a custom
tool to filter the selected text from stdin to stdout and have zim replace
the selection when you call it.

This is actually on my wishlist and would allow something like sortl-lines
to be a custom tool instead of a plugin. Makes a powerful general mechanism
