Converting gblorb.js back to gblorb file: doability/ethics?

I was curious about an Inform 7 work with alternate endings that was on, but I got lazy with trying different things. The game doesn’t have a downloadable zblorb. But the web page does of course link to a gblorb.js.

So I was wondering how one might go about reverse engineering a gblorb.js into a gblorb.

Is there already a utility for it? Is this sort of thing okay in general? (I think so, but I’ll ask to make sure.)

If there is no utility, but there should be, what is the relevant encoding?

It’s very easy to do; you shove the file through a base64 decoder tool. I do this in Python but there’s various command-line tools lying around.
