+AD4- Was there a good reason you reimplemented the struct module in Python?

Well, struct seems almost like an overkill, but could probably replace most usage of these routines. If I should need a good reason for keeping them, it would be my uncertainity of its (structs) endianism/portability since the codes need to be. It just looks like a module only used in interfacing. 

This is an only excuse since I didn't know of struct. :) Thanks for the tip
