I still think that, instead of hard coding this logic into the compiler, we
should make TypeInfo templated.  (See DIP 8 from ages ago,  This would
allow different runtime implementations to customize how the pointer offset
info works without modifying the compiler.  It would also make typeinfo
extensible, which is generally a good thing.
