Newer Solidity 0.5.x compilers generate ABIs whose function and event parameters contain an internalType field as well as the usual type.

In the examples I've seen, type and internalType usually have the same value. But presumably that would not always be the case.

What is the meaning and purpose of this internalType field? When would it differ from the just-plain type field?
