There are three functions associated with base64 decoder:
StartDecodeBase64(), EndDecodeBase64(), and DecodeBase64(int len, const
char* data). The decoder will call MIME_Entity::DataOctet() for every
decoded byte.

The current base64 decoder is part of class MIME_Entity. While it is
pretty easy to separate it from the MIME processing, as it is right now
you may not be able to use it directly to decode a given string. What are
you using Base64 decoder for? Maybe we can figure out a way to make it a
separate class.
