This is very welcome to cope with bi-endianness of MIPS processor.  As
a loosely coupled topic with above, some of Japanese developers once
discussed and dreamed of having /emul/mipseb and /emul/mipsel to
execute opposite endian binaries in user-lands. (R4000 could do it if
emul pkg was cool enough).
