[New-bugs-announce] [issue1227] csv docs say 'excel_tab'; code says 'excel-tab'

New submission from Dean Elzinga:

I was trying out 'csv module' and noticed that it wouldn't accept a
dialect of 'excel_tab' as documented.

Then I noticed that csv.list_dialects() gave 'excel-tab' instead of
'excel_tab' as documented.

I'm not sure which one it's supposed to be, but I guess when in doubt
the docs are wrong. I leave these issues to the higher gods.

Thanks for the work on this module. I'm enjoying it!
