Hi,

Can we give small flexibility in choosing the filename interactively for
`org-table-import'?  Currently org-table-import will just throw an error
when file name doesn't have .txt, .csv or .tsv as extension.

This patch tries to add a simple yes-and-no to let user choose if they
want to continue importing or not.
