Hi Maxim,

First of all I would like to thank you for testing out patches and
taking time to write a detailed report about it.

Currently `org-table-guess-separator' returns "," (COMMA as string) and
`org-table-covert-region' uses '(4) to represent COMMA as separator
which is the main cause of breakdown in importing.

To make importing work well we have to:

+ Guess right separator (`org-table-guess-separator')
+ Parse CSV with this separator (`org-table-covert-region')

As far as I can tell "guessing part" works well and now we just have to
make parser work well with new separators.
