Perhaps I'm too MS orientated, but as far as I understand, Mono starts to
make the .Net technology available for other platforms. So I think there
should be a wrapper around BitConverter (and simular functions), which
simulates a little endian system. Then I don't have to take care of the
underlaying platform, if I use BitConverter. Otherwise all people, who
transport their apps to Mono and use such functions run in trouble (like
me). Is that really necessary?
