You don't know what't endianness is, do you?
Say, you have a number: 0x12345678.
This is stored differently depending on the endianness.
Big-endian (like Sparc, Motorola, etc):
0x12 0x34 0x56 0x78
Little-endian (Intel-compatibles, etc):
0x78 0x56 0x34 0x12
So, how do you want your number to come out as a byte array?
Since a bytea is a sequence of bytes as stored in memory,
you may have different meaning for an int->bytea conversion.
It's your homework to look up what's "network order" is. :-)
But it would give you consistent answer no matter
what CPU your server uses.
