The CSV module provides a fast CSV parser which can split and join CSV
records which have been produced by Microsoft products such as Access
and Excel.

On Python 2.x the module outperforms string.split().  Of course the
CSV parser can handle much more complex records than string.split()...

This is a bugfix release.

The changes in this release are:

1- Fixed bug in memory allocation of internal parser buffer - thanks
   to John Machin for pointing this out.

2- Fixed compile warning on Solaris - thanks to Adam Goucher for
   reporting this.

2.1 binary up here:
