> Base64 has static methods specific to doing URLSafe encoding, but has no corresponding
URLSafe decoding method.
> This is be cause the decoding table transparently handles both URLSafe and standard alphabets.
Unfortunately this is only documented as a javadoc on a private member.
> There should be a mention of it
> * In the class javadocs
> * on the static decode methods
> * on the static URLSafe encode methods
