rtiddsgen Bitfield Question


I'm new to DDS and I was looking through the rtiddsgen release notes and found that bitfields are no longer supported.

I have several messages I'm interested in creating IDL files for that have a format similar to:

struct system_status{
  unsigned short status0: 4;
  unsigned short status1: 4;
  unsigned short status2: 4;
  unsigned short status3: 4;

Is there a way to do this without bitfields?  I can always just replace the bitfields with a single type and bitpack everything, but it might be easier to maintain in the IDL, if possible.  I'm looking at C code generation.
