Detailed Description

This file provides an interface for laying out a sequence of fields as a struct in a way that attempts to minimizes the total space requirements of the struct while still satisfying the layout requirements of the individual fields. The resulting layout may be substantially more compact than simply laying out the fields in their original order.

Fields may be pre-assigned fixed offsets. They may also be given sizes that are not multiples of their alignments. There is no currently no way to describe that a field has interior padding that other fields may be allocated into.

This algorithm does not claim to be "optimal" for several reasons:
