[okfn-labs] Python Iterator over table (csv) *columns*

I do not think this is possible, there is no way to tell beforehand the
indices for each new line without reading the whole file in memory to
search for '\n's, also cells in the case of CSV are not of a fixed size, so
no way build indices for cells without reading the whole line in memory
looking for separators.

Nevertheless, may be there is some magical solution out there that I don't
