Right now System.Convert depends on [From|To]Base64Transform, but it could
have been done the other way.
However if the base64 stuff is required elsewhere in corlib it may be better
to create an internal (at least in corlib) class.

It MUST definitely stay in corlib. ;)

There's already some Mono.* namespaces inside corlib. I'm myself a big user
of those namespaces. However I mostly use them when I want to share the code
between corlib and another assembly (like Mono.Security). If not I prefer to
use an internal class (and file) inside an existing namespace but YMMV.
Please update the unit tests if you change/fix anything in S.S.C.

I am about to do some work on Base64 handling. Hoping to move it out of
System.Security.Cryptography. However the question is, where should it
go? It should definitely stay in corlib. Should I create a Mono.Utils
namespace, and accompanying directory? This sort of thing is proably
quite important in the corlib.
