You forgot byte order.  Not only big vs little endian!  I've worked
with ARMs where the doubles were _mixed_ endian...

LOL! Middle endian... A coworker last year brought me some motion capture data, that we had to process with Python and feed to MotionBuilder - after some digging (binary data) I found out... it was middle endian single floats. Hopefully 0x3F000000 is easy one to recognize, and knowing some alignment requirments got us there.
