Well, that is my problem: I don't see how.
If you have to find the definition to know it is a struct that means:
- The variable/argument is not really used anywhere nearby (except maybe
  in an assignment).
- You have no idea what it contains, so even if you know it is a struct,
  how could you use that knowledge?

I currently really do not see a case where it is really any help to know
it is a struct - possibly with the exception of input/output
parameters, but even there a doxygen comment seems much more useful, and
more likely to be up-to-date (in this case, the code might be using int
* only for compatibility without actually changing it).
