Import HDF5 file with "Compound Data Structures"

The documentation states that Import[...] for HDF5 does not accept "compound data structures".

Is there a workaround or alternative for this?

The file in question has the following format:

In[2]:= Import[filename, {"HDF5", "DataFormat"}]

Out[2]= {{"UnsignedInteger128", "String", "String"}, "Real32", "Real64", "Real64", "Real32", "Real32", {"String", "Real32", "Real32", "Real32"}, "Real64"}

In[3]:= Import[filename, {"HDF5", "Datasets", 1}]

>>During evaluation of In[3]:= Import::h5type: The datatype of the dataset "/AcquisitionLog/Log" is not currently supported.

Out[3]= $Failed
