Not only this. C defines the layout as implementation depended. I once
was bitten by this when porting a networked project from a low endian
processor to a high endian processor :( .
Thus if we want binary portability of the structures we need to be
better than C (optionally defining the structure as high-endian or low
endian on user request) !!!!
