actually i'm not interested in such a lib yet
i just have a suggestion: it's better to use

  type encode(const type &src);

instead of

  void encode(const type &src, type &dest);

such that the use case becomes

  std::string enc = encode(pure);

if you notice a grammar mistake or weird phrasing in my message
please point it out
