      Description

      The default behavior of CSVDataSource is to build no columns and show no data if selectedColumnNames is empty. Most of the time we don't want to remember the column names in a csv file and refer to them with string values in code. The default behavior should in my opinion be to read the first line as headers and go with that if selectedColumnNames is empty.

      Another option is to have a flag for selecting between the two behaviors.
