Enhancement request: 'Native' importing of '.CSV' files

I am aware of the fact that it currently is not possible to import
arbitrary csv formatted files directly into GnuCash, and that instead
you have to use or write python/perl/shell scripts to convert between
the .csv and something that GnuCash understands like Intuit Quicken
files. But since I am not a programmer, unfortunately I am unable to
write a script or program to bulk transfer my bank supplied cvs files
to GnuCash supported formats like Intuit Quicken.

So I was wondering if there is any interest (both from user and
developer sides) to create a 'native' import-csv-into-gnucash feature,
preferably something where you can map fields of your csv file to
gnucash fields, and perhaps even save the mapping into some sort of
'template' so that you can easily re-use the mapping when importing
the next batch from your bank ?

Anyway, just something I was wondering about... I can imagine that
this topic has come up quite frequently already, so Im sorry if Im the
one that brings this up for the Nth time, but it would just seem like
such a basic and still very useful feature for banks that only supply
CVV formatted files.
