[Zope] Base64 - Encoding/Decoding without external method

You are not allowed to access base64 modules from python scripts.

A solution for this is to write a small product. In your Products folder 
add a folder called let's say GiveAccess and inside add a file __init__.py

The body of the file is:

from AccessControl import allow_module

Restart your Zope. Now you can use base64 in python scripts.
