[REBOL] Re: need advice on parsing image data

Yes and Yes.
As far as I can see, the official network form of the data uses CRLF (this
BTW is true of POP etc).
After using Rebol for a while, we may forget that a READ converts CRLF to a
newline - which is not so good for binary data - hence the /binary
refinement of READ. This fact escaped my memory until I read the section in
the Core manul on line conversion/endings. Hence, my issue in trying to
create a set of functions useful for post data and for email which we tend
to acquire with a READ in Rebol (for email is shouldn't be a problem because
Email generally does not handle binary data - attachments and encoded in a
mail-safe form before transport).
