The rationale behind this patch is that __packed__ works correctly on OS X and is therefore caught by the first #if.
For iOS and hypothetical OS X variants without support for this, my patch is applied. For iOS, pack(4) is correct according to info provided by apple's engineers on their subscription-only forums.

If you still consider this patch as wrong, please give details why.



P.S. any feedback on the previously posted patches targeting /contrib?
