Thanks to Mr. Harland....

Bottom line, the format is a netlist as we understand a net list plus the 
physical location and dimensions of the pads. It looks quite simple to 
write; it would be much easier to generate this from the Protel PCB ASCII 
file than from gerber; all the necessary data is there in named fields, 
mostly in the pad records.
