Definitely, but until that gets fixed in the front-end I'd rather 
have codegen not crash. I believe various parts of the bit-field 
handling need to be reworked but it is easier for me to evaluate 
when I can look at what works and what doesn't.

But the size of type bool should be 8 bits, otherwise the test case is  
For example,
    struct { int a:199; } b;
