The version of ASM now in use throws a specific exception we can catch by type. I realised looking at #1891 that this had not been available when the code was written.

I'm a little surprised at Oracle removing this without warning. Java is usually good for continuity. (Ok, I found work-arounds for the user, but that feels like a removal.)

I think binascii.b2a_base64 is the thing (except for the annoying newline).
