Attached a patch that modifies Lib/base64.py to raise a TypeError on any
unrecognized base64 input, rather than continuing silently. Also
includes unit tests.

Patch built against Python 3.2, r74246.

Correction to previous text: base64 continues silently, discarding
unrecognized characters, rather than failing.
