> Current implementation of `stout::base64::decode` errors out on encountering a newline
character ("\n" or "\r\n") which is correct wrt [RFC4668#section-3.3|https://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc4648#section-3.3].
However, most implementations insert a newline to delimit encoded string and ignore (instead
of erroring out) the newline character while decoding the string. Since stout facilities are
used by third-party modules to encode/decode base64 data, it is desirable to allow decoding
of newline-delimited data.
