	Gosh; I'd rather like to know why the explicit code to sort it to the
front was there in the first instance.

	Beyond potentially busting lots of other random import filters it looks
fine ;-) Have you tested all the nasty corner cases:

	.csv text saved with a .xls extension etc. etc. ?

	If you've tested at least a dozen file formats I'm happy for -3-5-0 I
guess ;-)

	All the best,
