I've been wondering whether it might be a good idea to provide an
inline encoding based on quoted-printable encoding.  Maybe it is
possible to implement quoted-printable using some kind of common shell
program.  Maybe even dd, sed or awk?  But at least with Perl it
should be easy.

We might wish to also encode the newline characters, just to be on
the safe side, and perhaps slashes.  (Tramp uses slashes to see where
the remote output ends.)

Of course, then the new encoding is not exactly quoted-printable and
maybe something needs to be done for the Lisp side.  [time passes]
Oh, qp.el provides for an arg that specifies which characters should
be encoded.  Cool.  But how to handle the target coding system for
the decoding?  Hm.
