While uuencode and base64 are nice and handy, I'd still recommend just using 
mysql_real_escape_string()--it will save a tremendous amount of space 
compared to uuencode or base64--which will inflate the size quite a bit.
(up to 50%-200% more iirc)

MySQL text fields are already binary safe, as are all other char fields.
