Sometimes comes to my mind. David Dawes once told me that X can handle both big
and little endian fonts, but that it's better (performance-wise) to use
native-endian fonts. The only exception is the PEX fonts, which always have to
be native-endian.

In personal conversations with technical people, I call myself a hacker. But
when I'm talking to journalists I just say "programmer" or something like that.
