What I don't like about it besides the extra work is that the
data is modified in an irreversible way. Is this optional
or a must?

Another thing: Do you have any recommendations how to handle
"%00" when decoding? Should I cut it out? Should I cut it out and
ignore everything behind it as if it was "\0"?
