When serializing a single integer, int.to_bytes and int.from_bytes are more efficient alternatives to struct.pack and struct.unpack. However, struct.pack and struct.unpack currently have the advantage that the byteorder does not have to be specified (because it defaults to sys.byteorder). It would avoid a lot of redundant code to make the byteorder argument default to sys.byteorder in int.to_bytes and int.from_bytes too.
