[Gtkradiant] Analyzing the mapq3 parser & some suggestions

Once I have analyzed the code enough I could propably come up with an implementation, would be a lot easier with a somewhat useful documentations.

I have a lot respect of the developers that wrote GTK Radiant without any documentation really, but on the other hand it should be a priority to get  a decent documentation done.

btw. I have read the most important topics of the last 6 months
