I've seen people build in to their programs the capabilities to deal
with both big and little endian issues. Maybe a separate function
dealing with the issue based on input. But, for some reason unknown to
me, they never did use the built in code and kept the thing x86 only.
I'm still waiting for this to get fully portable... If I was familiar
enough with the code, I'd attack it myself when I had a free moment. :(
