I wondered about this immediately after csv agenda export was added,
so I tested it.  My testing showed that commas in headlines are
converted to semicolon on export (it must be getting done earlier in
the code than where you looked at it being placed in the csv).
Probably not The Right Thing, but good enough, and surely easier than
worrying about quoting.
