Add external CSV/XML based loading of seed data

Reported by Michael Bleigh | April 24th, 2008 @ 10:21 AM

Should be able to mass seed data from CSV or XML with syntax something like this:

User.seed_from_xml("users.xml", :login, :email)
User.seed_from_csv("users.csv", :login, :email, :columns => [:login, :email, :first_name, :last_name])

The file path will be relative to db/fixtures. Should also be able to still pass in a block and set values statically or from an array even from the loaded data.
