The name is left off on purpose in the new gccxml version.  In the dump 
code for structs the following code appears:

   if(!TYPE_ANONYMOUS_P (rt))
     xml_print_name_attribute (xdi, DECL_NAME (TYPE_NAME (rt)));

The idea is not to give the Struct element a name attribute if the 
struct is anonymous.  Pyste should be updated to handle this.  If it 
needs a unique identifier for the Struct it can use the mangled 
attribute or the xml id attribute which is always unique in the xml
