True - most binary formats pick an endianness and other
platforms have to conform. I guess I was thinking about the
rare situation of PPC front/backend combinations, and trying
to avoid the swapping altogether.
I guess we should just decide that .nuv files will always
be little (or non-network) endian, so I will take SWAP_ENDIAN
out of my patch, and add some swapping functions into
