A simple but powerful way to access CSV files is via TxtSushi, which 
gives SQL access to CSV files, without needing ODBC:

   Hackage: http://hackage.haskell.org/package/txt-sushi

You'd have to use it directly, since afaik it won't work with Takusen, 
although a Takusen back end for it ought to be possible.
