The syntax is quite elegant, but you're pushing a lot of the complexity into
the VM engine.

How exactly is the VM engine supposed to handle the [PosixType] custom attribute?
Is it supposed to have a hard-coded list of types and their layouts,
and to report an error if the type name doesn't match one of the types in
its hard-coded list?
