Blick. Abbrevs suck. Plus I don't want to re-use the sucky name enum for
something related to what 'C' and C++ use it for.
+1 for itemize
+0.8 for enumerate (in other contexts/languages/systems it just returns
the items in sequence like a python iterator does). OK, so round it up
to 1 if fractions are illegal.
