Batch importing collection-level metadata

I have the metadata for hundreds of collections I want to create in Omeka(each collection has multiple items associated with it). The CSV Import plugin only allows for item-level metadata batch import, but I'm wondering if there is something similar or some way I can tweak the CSV Import plugin for importing and creating collections.

I considered using CSV Import to create item-level records with the collection metadata, and then changing those items into collections manually, but it seems there is no way to that. Are there any strategies for batch importing collection-level metadata? Or even auto-mapping my values for each individual collection to the correct fields, or am I stuck manually imputing the data?

There's not a good way to batch import collection data, but if you have some programming skills you could try building a script that will do it with the API that was released with Omeka 2.1
