Ximage's byte_order field

Am I allowed to change the value of the XImage byte_order field? And if
I do, will subsequent XPutImage() calls do the "right thing"? Does the
value of byte_order default to the client's byte order?

  I have a memory based frame buffer from another app that I'd like to
use XCreateImage() and XPutImage() to display in a repeating display
loop. Unfortunately, the source frame buffer is in big endian and I'm
running on a little endian machine.
