No real disadvantage; as I said, I think it is just a matter of personal 
opinions... I like the "struct" keyword reminding me that something is a 
structure, but I have no serious reason for this... So, if people like 
the typedef I'll not remove it. I'll just remove the final "_t" 
(probably during the weekend, when I'll finally have some spare time).
