Is INI file structure covered?

There's this freeware which has an open source license. In other words, 
it's closed source with an open source like license. This software is 
basically an EXE file and an INI file. The relevant part in the license 

Permission is granted to anyone to use this software for any purpose, 
including commercial applications, and to alter and redistribute it, 
provided that...All redistributions in binary form must retain all 
occurances of the above copyright notice and web site addresses that are 
currently in place (for example, in the Version tab).

But what if the binary is re-programmed from scratch (since the original is 
closed source) and only the INI file is used? That is, the new EXE still 
accepts the original INI settings but also brand new settings.
