Hi all,

I've been looking at this bug and am ready to start putting in some work on it but I have some questions about what is wanting to be done. From what I can tell these are the possible tasks for this issue.

- Add to the docs under the dialect section the excel attributes vs. the dialect class attributes and explain how the excel dialect is the default and this is the functionality you'd be changing by creating a new dialect.

- Add code to make sure that a certain number of attributes are set before the dialect can be accessed. (Though this might be C code and not really a C programmer nor do I know where _Dialect is in the repository)

- Change the defaults in the dialects class because currently the documentation for "double quote" and "skip initial space" says that the default is False when in the code it is None. Also I did not find the "strict" dialect in the module at all. (maybe its part of that C code that I don't know how to find.

- Add an example to the documentation on sub-classing dialect under the example on registering a new dialect

If someone could clarify which of these is the desired direction for this issue it would be much appreciated.
