The MIPS world is irredemiably split, and the pull between SGI
(always big-endian, M68000 heritage and Sun compatibility) and Linux'
tendency to see the x86 as the universe has left Linux/MIPS split too.

As software tool and prototyping board supplier, we just know that
everything we do has to work either way.

If you can change that, it would be great! :-)
