 Hi,

 I'd find rather useful to be able to access to the proper name of a nested
 type in this context:

 {{{
 In [106]:nesteddtype=numpy.dtype([('info', [('Name', '1a2'),('Value',
 '1c16')]),('y', '(2, 2)f8')])
 In [107]:nesteddtype['info']
 Out[107]:dtype([('Name', '|S2'), ('Value', '<c16')])
 In [108]:nesteddtype['info'].name
 Out[108]:'void144'

 }}}

 i.e. I'd expect the output for 108 to be 'info' instead of 'void144'.

 Would this be difficult to implement?

 Thanks
