We don't byte swap the IPTC data block.

The data in that block is treated separately from the TIFF containing it.

So this effectively means that Photoshop can't read IPTC data that I write to a motorola-order TIFF on my intel-order machine, or that is written to a intel-order TIFF on a motorola-order machine, given the current bug in LibTiff. LibTiff incorrectly swaps, and Photoshop doesn't swap back to compensate. Am I correct?
