/**
 * This interface allows writing of primitive data types (integers,
 * floating-point values, booleans, etc.) to a stream in a binary, untagged,
 * fixed-endianness format.  This might be used, for example, to implement
 * network protocols or to produce architecture-neutral binary disk files,
 * i.e. ones that can be read and written by both big-endian and little-endian
 * platforms.  Output is written in big-endian order (high-order byte first),
 * as this is traditional network order.
