After starting on Plumhead, aka PlumHeaded Parakeet, I stumbled on base64 encoded strings embedded in the XML emitted by phc http://phpcompiler.org/.
So an incomplete implementation is now at http://svn.perl.org/viewcvs/parrot/trunk/runtime/parrot/library/MIME/Base64.pir
The tests I stole from the Perl5 module MIME::Base64. Thanks to Will Coleda for compilers/json, which helps in setting up the test cases.
