Looking in the man pages for the uuencode and uudecode (http://www.manpagez.com/man/5/uuencode/), I see that the encoding used to go from ascii 32 to 95 but that 32 is deprecated and generally newer releases go from 33-96 (with 96 being used in place of 32).   This replaces the " " in the encoding with "`".  

For example, the newest version of busybox only accepts the new encoding.

The uu package has no way to specify to use this new encoding making it a pain to integrate.   Oddly, the uu.decode function does properly decode files encoded using "`", but encode is unable to create them.
