I almost always use csv personally, but it's a preference. I'm not sure
what the problems are you're refering to, but I guess that points to
using commas as well. Either way, it's not hard to switch between the two:

import csv

# Using regular commas
with open('outfile.csv', 'w') as outfile:
    writer = csv.writer(outfile)
    writer.writerow(range(5))

# Using tabs
with open('outfile.tsv', 'w') as outfile:
    writer = csv.writer(outfile, delimiter='\t')
    writer.writerow(range(5))
