Would still be bad for COMPAT_NETBSD32.

Well, we could always add explicit padding and be compatible that way, which is an option OS/X didn't have (too late, at the time they did 64bit support).

However, it would screw up COMPAT_DARWIN use which would otherwise work, I suppose. Or COMPAT_SOLARIS for that matter? They do seem to be trying hard to maintain a consistent on-the-wire format, so I'm hesitant to just break that.

And now that I look at it, it does actually seem to do network byte order on the "wire", too.
