That comment is not 100% accurate :)

While it is true that Type's don't inherently have names outside of the
SymbolTable, there are facilities at the Module level to deal with type
names. Please review the following Module functions:
  /// addTypeName - Insert an entry in the symbol table mapping Str to
Type.  If  
  /// there is already an entry for this name, true is returned and the
  /// table is not modified.
  bool addTypeName(const std::string &Name, const Type *Ty);

  /// getTypeName - If there is at least one entry in the symbol table
for the
  /// specified type, return it.
  std::string getTypeName(const Type *Ty) const;

  /// getTypeByName - Return the type with the specified name in this
module, or  
  /// null if there is none by that name.
  const Type *getTypeByName(const std::string &Name) const;
