      Description

      When using mongoimport to import a CSV, the field "0123" will get imported as the number 123 no matter what, there's no way to get mongoimport to treat it as a String.

      It could be nice to have an option to specify what type each field should be interpreted as. This could also be useful if we start supporting importing types beyond just strings and numbers (dates, for example).
