Ok, so here's my list - of the wires that pass through the rubber accordion boot near the righthand tailgate hinge on a 4th generation Outback wagon. I made it from the vacation pix, so not sure if it exactly matches what's on the car (or on a model later then 2005 at least) - but it should be close.

black: ground
purple: license plate lights
brown: high-mounted brake light
light green: rear wiper power
blue w/ white: rear wiper logic (for parking ?)
yellow w/ green: rear wiper logic (for parking ?)
red w/ blue: rear window defogger
brown w/ yellow: backup lights
light green w/ black: tailgate switch (grounded when gate open ?)
white w/ black: to tailgate lock actuator
light green w/ yellow: tailgate lock actuator
