Looks like perl has already encoded in this way:

[~]$ perl -e 'print pack("u","Ca\x00t")'
$0V$`=```

> Oddly, the uu.decode function does properly decode files encoded using "`", but encode is unable to create them.

The decoder source code explicitly states it could resolve backtick since some encoders use '`' instead of space.

To maintain backwards compatibility, I think we can add a keyword-only backtick parameter to binascii.b2a_uu and uuencode.
