The following is in the Python interpreter, but I have verified that
it works for Python scripts in Zope.

Python 2.3.4 (#1, Jul 30 2004, 09:49:24)
[GCC 3.3.4 20040623 (Gentoo Linux 3.3.4-r1, ssp-3.3.2-2, pie-8.7.6)] on linux2
Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.
>>> "Hello World!".encode('base64')
>>> 'SGVsbG8gV29ybGQh\n'.decode('base64')
'Hello World!'
>>> 'Clguba ebpxf!'.decode('rot13')
u'Python rocks!'
