      Description

      Using latest stable version and latest SNAPSHOT version, when I export to a CSV file the result of a query, the text fields aren't enclosed with double quotes as specified.

      Steps:

      0: jdbc:drill:zk=local> USE dfs.tmp;
      +-------+--------------------------------------+
      |  ok   |               summary                |
      +-------+--------------------------------------+
      | true  | Default schema changed to [dfs.tmp]  |
      +-------+--------------------------------------+
      1 row selected (0.126 seconds)
      0: jdbc:drill:zk=local> ALTER SESSION SET `store.format`='csv';
      +-------+------------------------+
      |  ok   |        summary         |
      +-------+------------------------+
      | true  | store.format updated.  |
      +-------+------------------------+
      1 row selected (0.117 seconds)
      0: jdbc:drill:zk=local> !set csvquotecharacter '"'
      0: jdbc:drill:zk=local> CREATE TABLE dfs.tmp.prods_without_brand AS SELECT * FROM dfs.`/tmp/prods.csv` WHERE brand = '';
      +-----------+----------------------------+
      | Fragment  | Number of records written  |
      +-----------+----------------------------+
      | 0_0       | 112                        |
      +-----------+----------------------------+
      1 row selected (0.198 seconds)
      0: jdbc:drill:zk=local> 
      

      The CSV output doesn't have any field enclosed with ", even those that have values with the , character, so the CSV is broken.
