Aws\Ses\SesClient\sendRawEmail() needs base64

Problem: You need to send raw e-mails to Amazon SES using the official PHP AWS-SDK, but Aws\Ses\SesClient\sendRawEmail() doesn't work even though your raw text is correct.

Solution: Encode your data in base64. Had to check their sample Perl script just to discover this. :-/

Working example:

require 'AWSSDKforPHP/aws.phar';

use Aws\Ses\SesClient;
$client = SesClient::factory(Array(
    'key     => 'foobar',
    'secret' => 'foobarsecret',
    'region' => 'us-east-1'

$data =<<EOD
From: "Example" <user@example.org>
To: "Simon Cornelius P. Umacob" <simoncpu@simoncpu.example.org>

hello world!

$tmp = $client->sendRawEmail(Array(
    'Source'        => 'user@example.org',
    'Destinations'  => Array('simoncpu@simoncpu.example.org'),
    'RawMessage'    => Array(
        'Data' => base64_encode($data)
