Given a declaration

   topDataQword= 29;
   topNameChar= 231;

   Tfnord= record
             case boolean of
               false: (data: array[0..topDataQword] of qword);
               true:  (name: array[0..topNameChar] of char;
                       inode: qword)     (* For recovery if name is 
changed      *)

is it possible to enforce a rule that the two record variants must be 
the same size?
