Yes, right.
But WinNT is still far from booting and crashes, I think, before
checking/swapping the endian mode (don't try: I never commited the
needed patch to support it's own XCOFF format in Open Hack'Ware as I'm
sure it's buggy...)
Then, I add no example of little-endian run on PPC.
What I knew is that some say that VirtualPC use this mode to have a
faster emulation.

Now, it's obvious that the feature is needed.
