The library for uuencoding and uudecoding does not support base64 
encodins.  The patch addached here adds base64 decoding, but does not add 
encoding support.

I think the 2.4 version is in maintenance mode, so no new features are 

You may target 2.5 or 2.6. But the patch is incorrect: the base64 name 
is undefined. You should include test cases and documentation changes 
also; please read

Now it's too late for 2.5 and probably for 2.6 too. If there are no news
this can probably be closed.
