We agree this is a problem, unfortunately, it's difficult to
fix -- there are recovery routines that routinely look inside
log records for things like database page numbers, it's not as
simple as just writing endian-independent records into the log.

We have this feature in the schedule for after 4.1.XX, but I
don't know for sure when it will be available.
