MIME::Base64

[ #31304 ]

After starting on Plumhead, aka PlumHeaded Parakeet, I stumbled on base64 encoded strings embedded in the XML emitted by phc http://phpcompiler.org/.

The plan is to create Parrot Intermediate Representation from XML. So I became sidetracked into making a MIME::Base64 module for PIR. As usual it took longer than expected, even though I found a nice german tutorial, http://aktuell.de.selfhtml.org/artikel/javascript/utf8b64/base64.htm
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.
