        I don't understand the problem they tried to solve. The explanation is not very clear:

        Since HSQLDB treats CHAR and VARCHAR strings the same, the ability to assign a different separator to the latter is provided

        Nor do I, but for whatever reason, they do use two different separators.

        And how do we know when to use which one? We'd track an array of separators?

        I think this can be postponed til after 1.0 since we not even sure CSV needs this.
