I believe the parameters that refer to the current contents are
optional, so you don't have to include them at all, but hopefully
someone else who's used those tools will chime in here.

That should be under your control with the custom command you decide
to use. If I'm understanding the purpose of the Custom Tools interface
correctly, it's just an internal interface that lets you run commands
from within Zim that you would have to run elsewhere otherwise.

Also, I forgot to mention that if you decide to experiment with the
Custom Tools, back up your Zim wiki first just in case something goes
wrong. I'm very good at breaking things, so that's always the first
thing I do before trying something new.
