Well, this information is needed by clients and no current gnatsd
command fits the purpose.  On the other hand I'm a bit reluctant to
introduce new gnatsd commands with such a special purpose.  For
instance, I think the `fields' subfield of the `enumerated-in-file'
might be useful to access as well (and I don't think it's accessible

Maybe a better idea might be to introduce a command

  FTYPINFO <field> <subfield>

where <field> is the field name and <subfield> a subfield of the type?
I'm not very sure about this idea, but I like it more than a bunch of
similar gnatsd commands.

What do you think?
