Too much work.  I can't tell when the file is written how it will
be used, and RFC 4180 makes no such exceptions.  I'm just gonna do
the RFC4180 version.  Been a long time since I have had sompatibilty
problems with CSVs.  Spreadsheet programs are pretty forgiving now.

Nothing, just another character.

Then I have to write line by line, very inefficient.  It was trivial to
just change \n to \r\n.
