THATS COPYRIGHT NODEJITSU IF YOU STEAL OUR CODE IM TOTALLY GONNA SUE YOU

Kidding :-p

I'm trying to think if there is a good way to include the other encoding in this sugar syntax api, maybe try to get this in core. Do you have any suggestions?

Nah I think it's trivial enough that it should just be documented somewhere perhaps. A lot of older node libs have vendored an even older base64.js file and it'd be nice if people didn't have to do that.

Word, I know I have base64.js files kicking around from before the Buffer object could this do. Maybe we'll do a quick blog post.
