In a bit of irony, the first time I used this in the "real" world exposed
a defect.  Specifically, Jon's original message was in UTF-8 and included
some UTF-8 characters (he used U+2019 as an apostrophe).  My script
isn't UTF-8 aware and simply spit those bytes out as us-ascii, which
results in a 3-byte weird sequence where apostrophes were supposed to
be in the above message.  Sigh; still more work to do!

But I see that Jon's original message was encoded in base64 and I didn't
even realize it!  Jon, did you do that on purpose just to test me? :-)
