Unfortunately I don't get a choice. I offer a field on the web site where
users can upload an excel sheet. Some of the fields of my database are
expected to have multi-line text in them. So I expect virtually all the
uploads to have multi-line fields in them.

So as far as I'm concerned, this import system is simply unusable. I have to
write a program to do the import. Since I was always planning to write such a
program I'm not too disappointed though.
