> There are situations where, when parsing a CSV file, one doesn't want to define an escape
character. For example, when using quote character ", the following is valid CSV;
> {code}
> a,"""b",c
> {code}
> The second column should be interpreted as "b. But when Apache Commons CSV is told that
there's an escape character, the above row is invalid (interestingly, if it was """b""", it
would be valid as "b"). 
> There are known formats that Apache Commons CSV provides, that doesn't define escape
characters either.
