You are working too hard here. pygccxml has functionality similar to

pygccxml.declarations.is_enum( arg.type ) will do the job

Obviously we need to supply different default arguments for wrapper
and for code that
actually exposes the function. The idea is simple we need new class variable on
argument_t class default_value_xxx ( I explain later why xxx, but you
will have to rename it
to something readable ). And then to generate code that in wrapper
uses original value, but
in boost.python code uses modified one, right?

I attached the solution to your problem. I made small refactoring + added new
functionality ( enum_declaration ) so you will need the latest version.

Hope I made you very, very happy :-).
