At least half of ascii85 encoders in wild implement this variant.

I think we can provide a universal solution compatible (with some pre/postprocessing) with both variants. Enclose encoded data in <~ and ~> or not, and at which column wrap an encoded data. Padding can be easy implemented as preprocessing (data + (-len(data)) % 4 * b'\0').

As for Git/Mercurial's base85, what other applications use this encoding?
