WL#3526: Incremental BASE64 encoding/decoding
Affects: Server-Prototype Only — Status: Un-Assigned
# RATIONALE The current set of functions for performing BASE64 encoding cannot handle incremental encodings, i.e., encoding the data piecemeal. Instead you have to accumulate the data into one big buffer in memory, and then encode it all in one go. This works well for small chunks of data, but if huge amounts of data are to be encoded, an incremental approach is necessary. # PROPOSAL Implement an incremental, stream-oriented, encoder/decoder that can write to/read from an IO_CACHE.
