Summary 0003756: standarize network XDR
Description There are several low-level places in the code of both the kernel and advanced applications where data is serialized "by hand" to put on the wire. (Look for places where a TDatagram is being assembled or interpreted at the other end.)

This code often uses code like:
  data unsignedLongAt: 5 put: (aFloat basicAt: 2) bigEndian: true.

As the technology matures and the number of separately working coders increases, it will become more important to have a standardized library for representing data on the wire.
Additional Information (Yes, I got bit by this, so I'm grumpy. Would you believe that getting the endianness wrong can give you a "Space is low" error?!)
