I also played around a little with the native-fdm and native-ctrls.
I made the following observations:
1. GNU C++ structure layout may _differ_ between different compiler
_minor_ versions. E.g., one sizeof() was 504 bytes on Linux with g++
3.3.3 and 520 bytes on Cygwin with g++ 3.3.1. Both on x86.
2. One can force the structs into same size by using the GNU-specific
attribute __attribute__ (( packed )).
3. GNU compilers ignore #pragma pack etc.
4. There is an RFC 1014: XDR (external data representation) which
basically defines big-endian integers and IEEE floating point values.
Wouldn't we want to base the interface upon XDR?
