Do you know whether BASE64 was considered as encoding scheme and 
whether uuencode was preferred? 
 
BASE64 is well standardized and generally used in MIME email 
(http://www.mhonarc.org/~ehood/MIME/2045/rfc2045.html#6.8) to encode 
binary data. There are plenty of codecs floating around. 
 
I remember reading this in the mmencode(1) man-page: 
 
 RATIONALE 
 
 Mimencode is intended to be a replacement for uuencode for mail 
 and news use. The reason is simple: uuencode doesn't work very 
 well in a number of circumstances and ways. In particular, 
 uuencode uses characters that don't translate well across all mail 
 gateways (particularly ASCII <-> EBCDIC gateways). Also, uuencode 
 is not standard -- there are several variants floating around, 
 encoding and decoding things in different and incompatible ways, 
 with no "standard" on which to base an implementation. [...]
