So how would "std::unaligned<Trivial>" work? Would it lack tail
padding? Or would it lack tail padding and also lack padding between

So if I have a trivial standard-layout struct as follows:

    struct Monkey {
        long unsigned a;
        char b;
        // padding here?
        long double c;
        char d;
        // padding here?
        float e;
        char f;
        // padding here?

Then what will std::unaligned<Monkey> do? Will it take out just the
tail padding, or will it take out the 3 pieces of padding?
