That is a good esplanation Dennis, and uuencode may be the standard for the
FTP process but that is not what we are using for iris-photos and nor is it
the standard for web browsing and email attachments.

The standard for iris-photos is MIME base64 for the convenience of the
predominance of our users. 

JPEG is the best file format to use (this is different than the encoding method)
