I suppose the other option is to have `.value` be whatever was assigned (1, 'really big country', and (8273.199, 517) ),
I thought that was the intention all along, and that we'd given up on the idea of auto-assigning integer values (because it would require either new syntax or extremely dark magic).
Yes, Guido rejected the auto-numbering syntax a while back. The only case in which auto-numbering occurs (per PEP 435) is the "convenience syntax":
Animal = Enum('Animal', 'fox dog cat')
Actually, since Guido has pronounced that definition order will be the default, there's no reason each Enum instance couldn't have an "ordinal" attribute.
