I see what you mean.
But, it seems like it would be a little more user-friendly to print the
original type name if we examine the runtime type and find that it is
identical to the declared type (after typdef stripping).

Probably not easily, but I'm sure it could be managed.
But, when printing a long structure this is likely to be more confusing.
