IIUC this is a much more modest proposal, for numpy's existing dtypes that
represent subarrays.

It seems pretty harmless I guess. It's a little uncomfortable to be adding
yet another attribute to all dtypes that will only be used by one obscure
subset of dtypes, but it's no worse than a bunch of other already existing
attributes in that respect.
