How can we improve PI Vision?

Export display to CSV file

Ability to export data from the screen to CSV file.
It's important to generate the file in CSV format rather than XML for multiple reasons:
1. It is what the engineers expect
2. It opens in Excel by default (the XML file opens great in Excel, but the default program is the web browser)
3. It is supported by other engineering applications

We'd like to see some enhancements for the format of the data in the exported data file.
The first "Display" tab is fine in the current version (it compares interpolated data for multiple data sources at specific time periods) but it would be nice to be able to specify a custom interval for the interpolated values.
The second "Archive" tab is just not very useful. It would be helpful to have recorded data in this format:

Datasource name,timestamp,data
[repeat]

What we see currently is this for each datasource:

Datasource name
Timestamp,data
[repeat previous line]

Summary:
1. Export to CSV
2. Change format of export to have 1:1 relationship between output lines and recorded values
