 {{{net_util.*}}}. Can't we use them here?

 I was looking for portable endian / byteswap functions but could not find
 any. Maybe I didn't look hard enough. Also was thinking about using the
 ntoh* functions, but considering that network order is big endian, there
 are no functions for converting network order to little endian if the host
 machine is also big endian.. Or maybe i'm overseeing something?
