Would it be acceptable to add a switch to the C front end to cause it
to dump the layout of struct definitions? This would simplify things
enormously. We could implement it without this feature, especially
for well-defined structs whose fields are known (but not their order
and sizes), but it's not very efficient when cross-compiling.
