Just endianness issues, or are there deeper differences?
If it's just endianness, it should be relatively easy to get that sorted
out, either via wrappers around the networking functions, or by
extending Storable itself (well, it's probably a bit too early for me to
try this, but there's a good chance that it will be at least one of
generally useful and instructive *g*).
