Sometimes a data file has columns that are not in the current configuration. Phenote currently writes an error message to stdout/log but then just proceeds to ignore the unknown column(s), which is ok if the columns are empty, but really bad if there were values in the columns that will now be lost. Phenote should pop up a warning if there are unknown columns in the input data. (Ideally, it would warn only if the column is non-empty, but that may be harder to implement.)
