Here's the more formalized proposal, suggested one of several ways:
- Change the big-endian MIPS (the newcomer) to "mipseb". Leave "mips" as-is
on the existing platforms which have had a 1.3.x release (newsmips has not
had a public release yet).
- Change both platforms to "mipsel" and "mipseb". Less desirable because of
the existing "mips" releases.
