> A more consistent alternative conversion:

What advantages `codecs.encode("...", "base64_codec")` has comparing with `base64.b64encode("...")`? The latter is at least more portable and powerfull (it allows to specify altchars).

I think that main problem with issue 7475 is that people don't think about a different (actually the most obvious) way to do base64 encoding.
