>>> [len(binascii.b2a_uu("x"*bin_len)) for bin_len in xrange(10)]
    [2, 6, 6, 6, 10, 10, 10, 14, 14, 14]
    >>> [(2+(bin_len+2)*4//3) for bin_len in xrange(10)]
    [4, 6, 7, 8, 10, 11, 12, 14, 15, 16]

How is this the correct estimation? The results are different.

Try the following:

>>> [(2+(bin_len+2)//3*4) for bin_len in xrange(10)]
[2, 6, 6, 6, 10, 10, 10, 14, 14, 14]
