Here is the commit message:

* More formatting changes to bring code closer to the Guido style.
* Changed all internal parser settings to match those in the PEP.
* Added PEP settings to allow _csv use by csv.py - new parameters
  are not handled yet (skipinitialspace, lineterminator, quoting).
* Removed overloading of quotechar and escapechar values by introducing
  have_quotechar and have_escapechar attributes.
Barest minimum of testing has been done.

- Dave
