New submission from Tony Wallace <tony at tony.gen.nz>:
Change to documentation preamble for csv module:
There is no “CSV standard”, so the format is operationally defined by the many applications which read and write it. The lack of a standard means that subtle differences often exist in the data produced and consumed by different applications.
CSV has been used for many years prior to attempts to standardise it in RFC4180. This has resulted in subtle differences often exist in the data produced and consumed by different applications.
