Yes, Robert. :-)

I took theese iterators (and 'transform_width') and wrap them in one simple
and ready-to-use solution. Simple and ready-to-use even for novices.

I need a such solution, for this common task. And I definetly know many
developers looking for such solution. Solution they can use immediately,
without long studying the documentation. Just few lines of code:

int main() {
    std::string text = "TEXT";
    std::string encoded = boost::base64().encode( text );
    std::string text_again = boost::base64().decode< std::string >( encoded

You think such (or similar) solution is not needed for Boost? Well, probably
it is not needed, but I think it's useful. If not - I apologize for
