There's an error in the spec : "byteorder is optional but recommended. It
should be either 'big' (linux) or 'little' (windows)".
This doesn't make sense. byteorder is related to CPU working, not operating
system. Linux x86/x86_64 systems are little endian, like Windows. Sometimes
little is described as Intel order and big as Motorola order.
