This should work as a consistent test for bigendian:

Is this test always safe, even on big endian machines? Couldn't the dtype.str sometimes be '='?

The test does would on big endian machines. What wouldn't work would be something like this:
-> isBigEndian = (obj.dtype.byteorder == '>')
On a big-endian machine you would get '=' in this case.
