Sorry, I don't get it. What do you mean?

As I understand it, itoa64 is supposed to be used for encoding to base64 
but JtR for now only decodes from base64 and never encodes to. It 
probably will in the future when source is more widely used formats 
(with hashes encoded in base64). OTOH, this is not mime base64 so its 
use is limited.
