Indeed, if one just googles boost base64 he'll find a large number of
hits on pages which explain how to do this using the component in the
serialization library. The only issue with the one in the serialization
library is that as it stands, it doesn't do the padding with '=' because
the serialization library doesn't need it. But the posts alluded to
above demonstrate how to add this.

The serialization component which deals this is called "dataflow
iterators" and the base64 component is just single usage case of this
