And there *are* text editors (even on Windows) that use regular expressions and thus can perform 
the transformation relatively painlessly.

All the best!

Writer is one of them. Calc supports regular expressions as well.

I have tested dozends of different csv flavours with all types of text,
numbers and subtypes of numbers. With one exception they imported all
well. The exception was $(123.98) for a negative amount which could be
fixed with a simple regex replacing "^\$\(" with "($". Calc is an
excellent csv import tool which imports correct cell values where other
spreadsheet apps import text and try to interprete the text on the fly.
