Comment:

 The truth is actually worse, the different parsing methods are
 inconsistent. From ticket #1619:

 {{{
 >>> t = np.dtype('i4, i1', align=True)
 >>> t.itemsize
 8
 >>> t = np.dtype([('f0','i4'), ('f1','i1')], align=True)
 >>> t.itemsize
 5
 }}}

 I'm going to change it to always put in the trailing padding.
