Hi all,

The image *does not* have to be base64 encoded, you can send binary

memory and power ;)

This is not that simple, send
base64 via dbus is not a good ideia, but connection managers will
receive it anyway,
decode it and
send it over dbus. This will require some buffers and in a big contact
list it is a big chance to have memory leaks or crashs. So maybe its a
better idea to sent the raw data
and the encode type than application will know how to
decode it. Also would be good to think on this funcion as a generic
file transfer too.
