Not good enough, frankly. What comments have I ignored? I didn't
implement your suggestion that a void* memory type become be32* because
it was totally inappropriate for a type that is passed in both be32 and

I'm sorry that you feel that way, but as you took the hump when I said

"Possibly the big-endian annotations need to trickly though the layers

Isn't good english (and it's not) and asked you - twice - to explain
what you meant. I cannot accept your summary.
