I've tried everything to make the original CSV module work. It just doesn't.
I've tried UTF-16 encoding (which works fine with but when I
pass in the file object returned from into csv.reader(), the
call to fails because it says something isnt' in the range of
range(128) or something (Not really an expert on Unicode so I'm not sure of
the meaning). I would use CSV if I could!
