New submission from Alex LordThorsen:
Had a friend get stuck on the CSV documentation. They didn't know what a CSV was (to start with) and couldn't find an example that made sense to them. they went to other sources to figure out how to read CSV files in the end.
I made this patch in the hope that starting out with a very minimal example file format followed by an example python read will make landing on the CSV docs easier to follow for new programmers.

The example in the patch is very similar to the example that's in the doc under "A short usage example::", which is not that far below the beginning of the doc.
