CSV was so much hassle to deal with for updates, and has no real method to address things like multiple SSIDs per BSSID (which Kismet now properly tracks).

Your best bet is to convert your processor to use the XML, your second best is to use something like python or ruby to extract the values you need from XML.

Hope that helps, Kismet now properly tracks more things that have a many:many or many:1 relationship which just can't be represented in CSV really.
