"Since the rewrite in pure Python of multiprocessing.Connection (issue #11743), multiprocessing.Connection sends and receives the length of the data (used as header) in host byte order."

I don't think so, the C code uses also the host endian. This issue is a feature request.

I don't know if anyone uses multiprocessing on different hosts (because it doesn't work currently).

If you would like to support using multiprocessing on different hosts, it should be documented in multiprocessing doc.
