Specifically, in section 17.6. base64..., near bottom, example should be

>>> import base64
>>> encoded = base64.b64encode(b'data to be encoded') #hang
>>> encoded
>>> data = base64.b64decode(encoded)
>>> data
b'data to be encoded'

with the first and third 'b' prefixes added.

I confirmed that doctest works with above.

I am a bit puzzled about Sphinx and 3.x comment, as doctest just need a plain ascii file and does not care how it was produced. (I used browser Save As text file function.) However, moot now.
