> As a user I would like to use CSVInputFormat to handle the CSV files following this RFC
http://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc4180.txt.
> Many developers use Apache StringEscapeUtils.escapeCsv( ) method to escape their CSVs.
The method escapes the CSV following the RFC4180. 
> https://commons.apache.org/proper/commons-lang/javadocs/api-2.6/org/apache/commons/lang/StringEscapeUtils.html
> The CSVLineReader throws exception in such a case. We can enhance the code to support
the CSVs that use escape same as the quote characters.
> https://github.com/apache/crunch/blob/master/crunch-core/src/main/java/org/apache/crunch/io/text/csv/CSVLineReader.java#L152
> I would appreciate a comment, if someone has knowingly rejected the idea due to some
technical limitation or a problem with allowing escape and quote as same characters. By the
way Apache HAWQ seem to get around this issue somehow and reads such CSVs alright.
