to_xml generated <foo type="binary"> tags not accepted by from_xml

Reported by John Franklin | July 28th, 2009 @ 08:06 PM | in 3.0.2

Converting binary data to XML creates ... tags. Sending the same tag back to rails fails to decode the base64 because the from_xml doesn't acknowledge the type="binary" attribute. It expects a type="binaryBase64" attribute, instead.

The attached patch adds support for a type="binary" with an optional encoding="base64". If the encoding attribute is absent, the data is considered unencoded.
