> There are crypto standards that require large integers for keys to be encoded in
> base64 with some special caveats (no sign bit, padding, etc). One of the
> standards that requires this is the w3c's XML-Signature standard. This patch
> adds this support along with junit tests. This code is taken from the Apache XML
> Security project's own Base64 class and changed to be more readable and add
> junit tests.
