Although I see your point, in the long term it will be required.
Assuming that Numarray will, at some point in the future, be included
in the stdlib... why not give these people some help, easing the
integration? A recipe, or some code that can be provisionally included
in Numarray itself (as a submodule), and then later migrated to the
CSV module... it does make sense in the long run.
