If you look back at some of the discussion we've had here, we talked 
about the fact that if you do an "export" from chirp itself, it suggests 
a .chirp file.  If you change that to .csv when you give it a filename, 
it will do a CSV export instead.  The wiki could definitely use a note 
about this.

The .chirp file format currently has all the same information in it as a 
CSV file, but it won't be that way for long.  Soon, I'll start adding 
things like bank information and other configuration parameters to it, 
which a CSV file can't really handle.
