Then we can lose the square brackets, something like:

    typedef struct TokenInfo -> packed -> TicketInfo;

or maybe:

    typedef nopadding struct TokenInfo TicketInfo;

or maybe:

    using TicketInfo = TokenInfo - padding;

or maybe:

    struct(packed) TicketInfo <- TokenInfo;

I can ask ChatGPT to suggest a dozen syntaxes.
