I have two questions about rustc-serialize.
What is the future of rustc-serialize? I read this StackOverflow discussion but I’m unclear on the implications. Is it intended that these serialization modules will eventually be updated and reincorporated as std::serialize, or are JSON/hex/b64 serialization intended to be in the domain of crates.io from now on?
The base64 module is not well-documented & I’m unclear on its use. I have owned Strings which I want to decode to integers. The base64 module implements methods for converting base 64 &strs and &[u8]s to byte sequences; is the limitation of this just because the implementation isn’t finished or am I just missing something about how base64 is intended to be used?
