I was writing to file strings such as
'\n\x00\x00\x00\x00\x00\x00\x00' and then trying to retrieve them via
readline(). It turns out that querying a MySQL table is easily quick enough
for my purposes (the bottlenecks are elsewhere). But I'll certainly check
out quopri (seeing as I wasn't aware of it). Thanks again.
