What's that supposed to mean?

My suspicion is that the code will be making lots of assumptions about
the machine, most of which will only be true on x86.  This would
include things like endianness, unaligned data access, and word size.
Windows-specific things wouldn't surprise me either.  On top of this,
the code is more than likely to be badly structured and outright ugly
to look at.

I'm saying this because those who use the RAR format are the kind of
people who would write such code.
