What are the expectations from a library claiming the moniker
"Boost.Base64?" Does it support just radix=64? Or is it a general
purpose library that works with any radix and a user-supplied
alphabet? If the latter is it limited to using integral types or does
it work with multiprecision integers? Does it use std::string? Fixed
size buffers? Does it work with Allocators? Which base-64 alphabets
does it support? MIME? UTF-7? RFC3548? RFC4648? Does it support
url-encoding and decoding i.e. ("modified Base64 for URL")?

Please be specific in the type of base64 library you are proposing.
