Wharf in 1.5?

Has the structure of the wharf file changed at all in 1.5?  I ask this
because I am writing a program to parse the wharf configuration file and
check for errors.

In order to do this I need to know:

* every possible item that can be configured
* all the possible values those items can take
* this informaton for both 1.4* and 1.5
* interdependent settings
* mutually exclusive settings

Is there anywhere that I can find a list of all possible items allowed
in the wharf file and all possible values for those items?  Also, can I
get this information for both 1.4 and 1.5?  Also, how do I check at a
later date if this is still the used method, or if it has been changed.

Thanks in advance for any help.

ps.  If I find it easy enough to write this parser and there's enough
interest, then I will also try my hand at one for the pager, for looks,
for feels, etcetera...  So, please give me a hand and some
encouragement.  At the moment I have to repeatedly rape my wharf file in
order to check for dependencies... I've had some strange effects.

pps.  Are there any lex and yacc experts out there?  :-)

ppps.  At the moment it is at a stage where it checks the wharf's
settings but will fall over on folders and the contents of buttons...
haven't had the time for this yet.
