[New-bugs-announce] [issue22505] Expose an Enum object's serial number

New submission from Ram Rachum:

I'd like Enum objects to expose their serial numbers. Currently it seems the only way to get this is `MyEnum._member_names_.index(my_enum.name)`, which is not cool because it's cumbersome and involves private variables.

Perhaps we can use `int(my_enum) == 7`? Or `my_enum.number == 7`? I'll be happy to make a patch if there's agreement about this.
