New submission from Yves Dorfsman <yves at zioup.com>:

email.encoders.encode_base64 returns a str of a single long line instead of breaking it up into 76 chars line as per RFC 2045, and as implemented by email.base64mime.

In /usr/lib/python3.1/email/encoders.py, use encodebytes instead of b64encode:
