/**
* Why base-58 instead of standard base-64 encoding?
* - Don't want 0OIl characters that look the same in some fonts and
* could be used to create visually identical looking data.
* - A string with non-alphanumeric characters is not as easily accepted as input.
* - E-mail usually won't line-break if there's no punctuation to break at.
* - Double-clicking selects the whole string as one word if it's all alphanumeric.
