base64url: Fast and URL-Safe Base64 Encoder and Decoder

In contrast to RFC3548, the 62nd character ("+") is replaced with "-", the 63rd character ("/") is replaced with "_". Furthermore, the encoder does not fill the string with trailing "=". The resulting encoded strings comply to the regular expression pattern "[A-Za-z0-9_-]" and thus are safe to use in URLs or for file names.
