After I implemented it myself, I have found 2 more implementations of
quoted-printable primitives in Emacs/lisp tree.
Guess why? Because "Describe function" had no idea that they are
already implemented and I haven't found them in Emacs Lisp manual.

Would I even found them at the beginning, I would not dare to use the
one from Gnus, because:
* it belongs to different project in my eyes.
* gnus/qp.el requires mm-util, which I neither need nor want right now.

base64 functions are built-in, though.

2Lars: Only first 7 lines of the References header field are
highlighted in Gnus v5.9.0 and sorry, if this is already fixed.
