  Immediately, I'm looking to get boost::serialization working. We
use vxworks on ppc boards as well as their 'vxsim' environment --
which is code compiled to run natively in the host environment. The
sim environment may be running under sparc or x86 hardware, so we were
toying with the idea of resolving endianness issues with

  I'm more or less looking for some sort of outline of what others
