Sorry for not replying earlier.
If we anticipate changing the fixed-size items now, how about adding
some kind of version control in the type name now? Or -- more
specifically -- what are the exact ABI goals? I.e., if we change the
size of the type, will we just require a recompile? Or will we want
to support old binaries and new binaries simultaneously?
