Anyone want to write uuencode and uudecode?  Or better, find an existing
implementation and get it working in Squeak?  Base64MimeConverter would
be a nice guide to the structure, and it sure would be nice if Celeste
supported it....

BTW, I'll always remember spending a few weeks MIME-ifying an email
reader according to the specs, and then getting busted by the very first
email I received from Microsoft Outlook because it uses the
anti-standard uuencode.  Really, uuencode is more than non-standard --
the standards only mention uuencode to say *not* to do it.
