SubjectRe: Linux/IA-64 byte order
Sorry, I wasn't clear in what I said.  You said there was no technical
reason for any endian-ness - it was arbitrary. So I took that to mean that
you would not agree that running X-endian on a machine with X-endian
devices was a good technical reason.

}No, I'm arguing AGAINST using BE.

Compromise. 8-bit computing.

}The computing world would be better off with just one byte order, that
}byte order isn't going to be BE.
