Aha, I see what the problem is now. The constructed types are
displayed, but slightly differently from the rest of the show -a output.
Normally, show -a only lists the extreme-right-most tag name, but when
displaying a constructed type it displays the extreme-right-most tag
names of both the parent object and the constructed type, so if you have
a model like:
?TypeA Tag1 Subtag1 Int
?TypeB Tag3 Subtag3 Text
then show -a outputs things like:
TypeA : "Foobar"
Subtag2 Subtag3 "Something interesting"
which is not quite what I was expecting, but sort of makes sense.
