Hi Doug,

I would be interested in seeing your binascii code. Maybe we can merge yours and mine?
It seems that you took a different approach than me. I more or less translated the Jython versions of the different functions (Java is in my opinion much closer to python and much easier to read - no pointers ;-). I have not done much refactoring yet, I concentrated on writing test cases.
