Hmmm, no, I'd say not. A word is a word, and the PDP-8 don't know anything
You might argue that the EAE-option were big endian. However, I don't
remember which way it stored 24-bit words. Do you remember, Allison?
The PDP-8 did number the bits the other way around, though, but then
again, just about every computer of that age did.
