I have used tweak_epub (part of the Atlantis Word Processor) and it's simplicity is it's strength. It just opens the .epub, let's you change some text using your own text editor for any file therein contained (except images) and then saves the .epub.

It's useful for deleting/editing a CSS style that doesn't work or changing some metadata info. It doesn't pre-parse nor post-split like Sigil, but it get's you (quickly) right to the text you want to change and move on!
Well there's kind of actually is this option. The Edit in Sigil option is not bound to the Sigil executable, but whatever program you set. You could actually use any editor. On closing it will restore the Table of Content by finding the files in the zip.

I have not tested it with the program you talked about, but I am sure it would work.

Update : I have tested it with the Tweak_epub you talked about and it works perfectly.
