Ok, no big deal then.
But you had better put LOTS of words in there to explain that the
authentication stream may contain ANY character - including NUL characters
and CR/LF combinations. Also you need to describe how to encapsulate
variable length authentication data.
My personal take is to say that the data is encoded using base64 the data
and it's CRLF terminated. It's a LOT easier, and less likely to break
