Yes, Yves, that is a good point. You could go further, for example in this
case the list is a mixture of _Real and _Complex. If we convert the _Real
to _Complex then we could pack the array

Developer`PackedArrayQ@tst[[All, All, 2]]
False

Developer`PackedArrayQ@(tst[[All, All, 2]] /.
x_Real :> Complex[x, 0.])
False

Developer`PackedArrayQ@
Developer`ToPackedArray[(tst[[All, All, 2]] /.
x_Real :> Complex[x, 0.])]
True

Regards,
Oliver
