What about TextFieldParser?

I just stumbled across this project, and noticed this quote under the "Why?" section on the main page:
CSV is a common data format that developers need to work with, and .NET does not include intrinsic support for it.
What about the TextFieldParser type? Personally, I do see the need for a different CSV parser, but the statement that .Net doesn't include intrinsic support is just plain wrong. The "Why" should focus on calling out the things the KBCsv does well.

Hi,

TextFieldParser is a Microsoft assembly (Microsoft.VisualBasic.dll), so is not part of the BCL. Nor will you find it in mono...

Best,
