FYI, our only requirement right now is for a Base64 class. We use three
different ones so far (don't ask).

Subject: Re: [codec] promote from sandbox

Just read the etiquette thing.  I think a good indicator that Codec 
Base64 is ready for consumption is its successful integration in both 
HttpClient and XML-RPC.  I see that it is used in many more projects, 
but those are the two who have been active recently.  Once we have two 
projects using it, I imagine other projects will be more likely to jump 
on board.

However, Base64's readiness for consumption is probably not enough to 
warrant Codec's promotion by itself.

Does anyone have an opinion on what they'd like to see in Codec before a 
release?  Tim's documentation on an architecture roadmap is a good 
start, imho.
