Subject: Re: [std-proposals] Modern std::byte stream IO for C++

Unless I am missing something the endianness is a runtime property.
You should provide API that allow to serialize based on compile-time
provided endianess (either two functions different names, or templated by
endianess), as I do not want to pay the prize of runtime dispatch overhead
(+unnecessary code bloat) in scenarios where endianess is known up-front.
