Thanks for pointing out the error, locally you can fix it by (patches
for patches):

;;;###autoload
 (defun org-table-import (file separator)
@@ -955,12 +971,13 @@ lines.  It can have the following values:
 - integer When a number, use that many spaces, or a TAB, as field separator.
 - regexp  When a regular expression, use it to match the separator."
   (interactive (list (read-file-name "Import file: ")
-                     (prefix-numeric-value current-prefix-arg)))
+                     current-prefix-arg))

Currently I am trying to refactor CSV parsing by applying techniques
used in pcsv library (MELPA package) which I think you will also enjoy
to play with!
