I supposed it had one. Obviously, I've never used it myself, otherwise
I would be sure about its existence. Nice to know about it, although I
assume that for many data transfers it will not be painless if you
need several escapes, when CSV starts to become complicated it starts
to fail because of quirky and naive parsers.
