* [PATCH 2/8] Move encoding routines to src/common/
I wonder if it is confusing to have two of encode.h/encode.c. Perhaps
they should be renamed to make them distinct?
Yes it may be a good idea to rename that, like encode_utils.[c|h] for
the new files.
Looking at these encoding functions, the SCRAM protocol actually uses
base64 for everything.
Oh, one more thing. The SCRAM spec says:
The use of base64 in SCRAM is restricted to the canonical form with
Our b64_encode routine does use whitespace, so we can't use it as is for
SCRAM. As the patch stands, we might never output anything long enough
to create linefeeds, but let's be tidy. The base64 implementation is
about 100 lines of code, so perhaps we should just leave
src/backend/utils/encode.c alone, and make a new copy of the base64
routines in src/common.
