Robots have no smarts!
There is no way to program a text reader to do that ... either you have
"comma delimited" string or you don't. If you stick a comma into the string,
all the words will be treated as if they should be "comma delimited"
and the words between commas will become phrases. "partly comma delimited"
is like partly pregnant ... not possible.
