Yes, I am aware of endianess issue found by Darwine people when 
integrating it with Qemu to run x86/PE binaries on PowerPC: 

It is said byteswapping isn't worth trouble but if Rosetta did it (only in 
reverse direction) isn't this issue only about developers work time and 
not about performance?

Then it seems Sparc V9 can switch to little endian to access data.

Right to the binary translation (or even dynamic recompilation), I guess.
