To decode a ncftp password

After looking at the above bookmarks file, you will see:

bookmarkname,ftp.host.com,username,*encoded*Zm9vCg==,,,xxxx,x,x,x,x,xx,xx

#To uncode it, its just base64. At first I wrote a php file with echo base64_decode('ncftpbookmarkpass');
#but there is a quicker way:
:~$ openssl base64 -d -in <(echo Zm9vCg==)

#P.S. drop the -d to encode, i.e. :~$ openssl base64 -in <(echo foo)
