I just did a test export of my Palm addressbook from JPilot, and it
looks to me, with only cursory examination, like it's doing the right
thing.  For example: "Answering Svc., Inc."  I have several records
with such fields.  Some with multiple comma-separated parts.

That should be seen by anything importing it as a single field, as
per the CSV specification.
