you are accurate.
there is no endianness issue with byte streams. only when a process writes 16b
or longer words is there a question of which part is written first.
this affects utf-16 and ucs-4, in terms of unicode.
utf-8 and scsu (the standard compression scheme) are safe.
ps: i am pretty darn close to you - in rtp :-)
