    You, Barry, and Guido, who have also worked on enum, know him best
    and are the principle supporters of this proposal. I gather that you

    As 'stoneleaf', he has been active on 12  issues since June 2010
    (nosy on 2 more). One patch is open and 5 have been applied (3 by
    Nick, 1 each by Antoine and R. David),  I would say that the enum
    code, which appears to be on the way to acceptance,  is equivalent
    to a few more typical issue patches.<br>
