GdaDataModelImport should allow progressive loading

We have custom CSV-parsing code in Glom because GdaDataModelImport does not offer a way to do "progressive" loading, which would let us a) Import just a few rows to offer sample rows so that the user could select fields and types to map to existing table columns. b) Would allow our UI to remain responsive when importing large files and when importing over slow network connections.
I have no particular idea how this might be done in the API but I thought I'd mention it. We'd rather just use code from libgda.
