> Hi,
> I'm developing an application that generates QRCodes, so the user does not need to type
a HMAC value. QRCodes [1] supports different encoding formats, in particular the alpha numeric
format is almost compatible with the Base32 (the only problematic character is the '=' character).
> I created an almost exact copy of Base32 class in order to change the padding byte, however
the BaseNCodec#PAD byte is final and not settable in the class constructor.
> I already tested this approach and I can provide a patch to support this new feature.
