+Summary: Convert.FromBase64String throws exception on empty string
+I don't know if this really is a bug or not; On MS' .Net, calling
+Convert.FromBase64String with an empty string will also return an empty
+string. However, the documentation says that a FormatException will be
+thrown if the length is less than 4, which last I checked, 0 is less than
+4. Mono follows the documentation and throws an exception on empty strings.
+While holding to the documentation is good, so is code portability with
+MS's .Net.
