Issue description
Item 372 imported from sourceforge.net tracker on 2013-01-28 20:18:20

ufo2map should report entity keys that don't belong there - maybe parse the entity.def and use that one as reference - keys that are not listed in it should be reported as wrong and should be removed

a parser for the def file can be found in radiant already - eclass_def.cpp (afair)

putting the def parsing into an own file would be nice - then we could use the functions in radiant, too (once we merged all those shared functions to use the same code instead of having it twice in our source tree)

the def parser should therefore be written with keeping in mind that it should be useable from outside (only use COM_Parse or low level stuff e.g.)
