csv-to-sqlite 2.1 - script support, encodings and brackets

Version 2.1 of csv-to-sqlite was just released.

I can’t say I have much experience with community-organized dev events, but the organizers clearly did their homework. I’m not exactly an avid tweeter, but I couldn’t resist: It was obvious immediately after entering #PyConSK that I hadn't seen this many nerds in one place in quite a while. I've missed it. — zblesk (@zblesk) March 11, 2016 That was prompted by...
