Array support is on the TODO list.

The easiest workaround is to define a UserName %MappedType that does the
conversion and the necessary bounds checks and define username with the
UserName type. This is all in the .sip file, you don't need to change the
C++ code.

Or you can be a bit more clever and do something like...

%MappedType CharArray<SIZE>

typedef CharArray<250> UserName;
typedef CharArray<20> Field;

struct message
    int id;
    UserName username;
    Field field;

...I think.
