I agree, it seems that we really want some routines in libsupport like:

uint32_t Convert32BitToLE(uint32_t x);
uint32_t Convert32BitToBE(uint32_t x);
uint32_t Convert32BitToAny(uint32_t x, Endianness_t);

That way, the routines could be used for "push_back" as well as "write to memory" types of API.  For "reading", we'd also want Convert...From
