I frankly see no reason at all to do this "everywhere", it's just
unnecessary code churn. The struct tags are only useful if the structure
references itself (via pointers), and our practice for such cases was to
declare the typedef first, and the struct itself below it, and use the
typedef name in the struct definition.

So unless someone can explain the reasoning why all these anonymous
structs and enums etc. should have names -- on technical grounds, not
some stylistic hand-waving -- then please revert.
