listclean can clean hierarchical lists, such as Accounts with Contacts with a cleansing pass required for each level in the hierarchy.

Hierarchical lists, such as Accounts with Contacts require two passes to clean the list:

listclean will make informed guesses for the hierarchical structure based on the field names, i.e. Column Headers in row 1 of the spreadsheet.
