unidecode broken on Intel Macs?

The bytes in a word in a Unicode document created on a big-endian
processor, such as the Macintosh, are arranged in an order opposite
to that of the bytes in a word in a document created on an Intel
processor. This means that you may have to revert all bytes in your
unicode stream. For example 0xe0a1 becomes 0xa1e0. You need to
experiment a little with this, because there is a bug that may cause
a need for conversion to 0x1a0e.
