 Matthew Brett noticed that can_cast has some weird behaviors when calling
 it with struct dtypes. The email thread starts here:

 He had a suggestion for beginning to approach the problem:

 How about, at a first pass, returning True for conversion of void
 types only if input dtype == output dtype, then adding more
 sophisticated rules later?
