Definitely useful - a read-only viewer of delimited files, would be a
useful feature (and sometimes safer then an editor) which I would use
But a really nice feature would be to be able to open a delimited file as a
table, then being able to edit it using all the usual org features for
tables, and being able to export the table to the delimited format again,
while at the same time being able to save the org file. So there would be
1) import delimited file into org-table
2) export of table into delimited format
Both in itself would be very useful, but together they would be brilliant.
