It would return the size in bytes of a structure. Earlier I found myself
making a CTabHandle, by doing something like this:

(make-record :ColorTable :storage :Handle 
             :length (+ (sizeof :ColorTable)
                        (* num-colors (sizeof :ColorSpec))))

But, I couldn't because sizeof is not existant. Is there a better way to
treat this sort of thing?
