same result in Pharo

> So from the image's perspective, there is no difference for little endian / big endian forms in the raw bitmap values in 32 bpp.

Neither helps SqueakJS, because Javascript's Canvas.putImageData() uses RGBA. May be I should add a WebGL rendering path ... the swizzling would be easy in a fragment shader.
