[Numpy-discussion] Controlling endianness of ndarray.tofile()

On my system (Intel Xeon, Windows 7 64-bit), ndarray.tofile() outputs
in little-endian. This is a bit inconvenient, since everything else I
do is in big-endian. Unfortunately, scipy.io.write_arrray() is
deprecated, and I can't find any other routines that write pure raw
binary. Are there any other options, or perhaps could tofile() be
modified to allow control over endianness?
