I'm thinking in the above that foo would be an array of items of my-structs,
not a struct with an array such as 'z' inside it.

Another way of invoking tab would allow you to attach a name temporarily
or permanently to an array within a struct (provided via a pointer message).
Then indeed you'd need the field name such as 'z'.
