Definitely the way to go.  Libs already out there to parse them,

This is ridiculous. The hard part isn't parsing the files, it's doing
something useful with them once they're parsed. You're tackling a minor
detail out of the problem (whose implementation is more effort than will
ever forseeably happen given the payoff) and ignoring the
interesting/useful/hard parts of the problem.
