AFAIK, only ASCII armor is used to sign email messages. Even if this
is not always the case, 8bit data is recommended to send base64
encoded, so I don't really understand your concern.
Anyway, with my implementation we are free to do whatever we need
with any content type, so if this is not a text type, we don't even
*have* to transfer-encoding decode it. We don't even have to show it
in the message.

Please feel free to explain what you mean. I appreciate your input
very much.
