Before this becomes part of the language or standard library, I think we
should consider whether or not it is really worth its cost.  Without this, I
believe Mercury executables could strip out field names.  Once it's in, that
becomes much harder, and in some cases impossible.  So is this feature
really worth the executable-size bloat?
