Please don't.

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.
