Nullable Value Delimiter


I think that ValueDelimiter property should be nullable. In a file without value delimiters you currently have to set as ValueDelimiter a character not used. But you cannot be sure to choose a right char actually never used. Shoud be enough to use ValueDelimiter null to skip the check

Here is a patch to allow for a nullable ValueDelimiter. It has helped me import a record that contains a double quote in the data using a tab as the ValueSeparator. Another option would be to set the ValueDelimiter to char 0.

As a side note I'm unable to run all the tests with Visual Studio 2010, as I receive a "This project is incompatible with the current version of Visual Studio." message when loading the project.
