    Linear TSV is a line-oriented, portable tabular data format. Tabular data --
    rows of tuples, each of the same length -- is commonly stored as CSV and is the
    lingua franca of spreadsheets, databases and analysis tools.
    CSV is almost but not quite line-oriented, because newlines are quoted, not
    escaped. In the TSV format presented here, escape codes are used for newlines
    and tabs in field data, allowing naive filtering with line-oriented shell tools
    like sort, fgrep and cut to work as expected. In all of its details, the format
    derives from the TEXT serialization mode of Postgres and MySQL.
