BTW, BinaryReader/Writer is always little-endian. This is documented
on MSDN.

BinaryReader.ReadInt32: little-endian
Bitmap.LockBits:        big-endian
Buffer.BlockCopy:       big-endian
LayoutKind.Explicit:    big-endian
Marshal.Copy:           big-endian
Marshal.WriteByte:      big-endian
Unsafe code:            big-endian
