It seems that such change would get us to have name conflict with <endian.h> (at least on Linux),

phtoXX() take a pointer and handles unaligned data; renaming them won't cause a conflict with the Linux #defines.

htoXX() take an argument and just byte-swaps as necessary; they're currently just wrappers for GLib macros:

      /* Turn host-byte-order values into little-endian values. */  
      #define htoles(s) GUINT16_TO_LE(s)
      #define htolel(l) GUINT32_TO_LE(l)

so one option would simply be to get rid of htoles() and htolel() and just use the GLib macros directly.

If we want to go this way (use glib macros directly), we can also kill BSWAP16, BSWAP32, BSWAP64 macros, and replace
