Hi All.

I have not looked at any code, one way or the other, but my two cents:

        CSVMODE = "descriptive string"

is better than values of 1 and -1, which one would have to find the
meanings thereof in documentation every time one wanted to use
the feature or look at existing code.

Using the namespace feature sounds correct to me. It should be easy.
Simply put

        @namespace "csv"

at the top of the file and then write functions that should be
called from user code as

        function awk::csv_magic(xx, yy) { ... }

I also wonder if maybe it's time to move the rest of this discussion
off into private mail?
