BBEdit, to give one example, ships with a command-line "bbedit" stub tool
that will simply launch BBEdit for you.  When you first run BBEdit, you are

EDITOR to "bbedit" or type "bbedit foo.c" from the command line or whatever.

As for file managers not supporting bundled apps: don't use those ;)  But if
you come up with a good standard, then you can start building a foundation
of "compatible" file manager applications.  "Progress", I think they call
it... ;)
