Grr. I think this is a serious mistake. The type should
hold all of this information so that it would be possible
in principal to have a pointer to a packed int.
Packed fields aren't necessarily even on a byte boundary.
It also means my alignment patch yesterday is probably
wrong for packed fields at the moment.
I think you could construct such a case, yes. But it's also unlikely
because you are only specifying the alignment *of the offset*.
