digitalmars.D.learn - Any structinfo .. ? How do I get struct name at compile-time or runtime?

Is it possible to get the name of the struct automagically? It doesn't 
have to be at runtime, I just need it at compile time .. really.

I hoped I could do the following, but it doesn't work:

struct Foo
     char[] getName()
         return this.stuctinfo.name; //no such thing!!!

Well .. right now I'm reading object.d and it seems there's a 
TypeInfo_Struct class .. but how do I get access to it?

ok ....

I just tried:
struct x

void main()
     char[] name = (cast(TypeInfo_Struct)typeid(x)).name;
     writefln( name );
but it prints out the full qualified name of the struct ... (in my case, 

isn't there a straight forward way to get the struct name, like 
classinfo.name for classes?
