> PyUCS4 also should be 32-bit, therefore Python requires such type.

Hmm, okay.  I wonder whether PY_UINT32_T should have been used there, to avoid doing the same checks in multiple places.

> big-endian give different random sequences. Is this important?

Yes, I think it's important that this code change doesn't change the random sequence if the seed is unchanged, on any platform (32 / 64-bit, big versus little endian).
