Yeah, just found out. :-) And adding TOKEN_NO to the list of valid
base64 tokens solves this specific problem.

But technically a valid base64 string could contain any one of the
elements in intern() that don't contain a hyphen.

I'm thinking more in the line of parsing not "while something base64"
but rather "until something non-base64". It seems peek_token() always
returns with cfile->tval set to the token (courtesy of the inner
get_raw_token()) in question, and parse_base64() already has the
"from64" array to help.

I'll try and write something up around that.
