Well, I get what you mean, but how can you possibly mess up the format of a plain text file?
There's no problem with the sound, I'd just like it to be customieable as well so one can suport the feelings hat come up with a palette.
Extra spaces and certain invisible text that could accidentally be added could corrupt the data :)
Customizable sounds aren't quite high priority - probably only after customizable colors!
Hm. Then I'd suggest that any data which can't be interpreted is ignored and automatically generated settings overwrite the corrupt data.
Of course - the actual gameplay machanics are more important anyway.
