    Dual-endianness is _evil_.

    Admittedly host-endian is stupid too, but it's less stupid than being
    dual.

    The only sane thing to do is fixed-endianness. I'm sure the m68k people
    remember being forced to fix their ext2 partitions back in the bad old
    days. It's painful once, but after that, fixed-endian is a lot more
    efficient and much simpler to handle.
