 Replying to [comment:3 oliphant]:
 > Why aren't we just checking for endian-ness or using sys.byteorder at
 compile time?

 Mostly because of universal support on mac os x. IIRC, I added this code
 to circumvent a wrong endian detection in Python itself, which fixed the
 endianness at compile time.
