endiannesses

i extend the term "endianness" to mean the order of symbols within a representational sequence, and whether that order is least-significant to most-significant (little endian, hereby LE) or most-significant to least-significant (big endian, hereby BE).

in technology and culture, there are a variety of places in which endianness makes sense to talk about, and not all of them are of the same endianness.
