In the Planet example we saw the possibility of specifying arguments to enum item __init__:

class Planet(Enum):
     MERCURY = (3.303e+23, 2.4397e6)
     VENUS   = (4.869e+24, 6.0518e6)
     EARTH   = (5.976e+24, 6.37814e6)
     MARS    = (6.421e+23, 3.3972e6)
     JUPITER = (1.9e+27,   7.1492e7)
     SATURN  = (5.688e+26, 6.0268e7)
     URANUS  = (8.686e+25, 2.5559e7)
     NEPTUNE = (1.024e+26, 2.4746e7)

     def __init__(self, mass, radius):
         self.mass = mass       # in kilograms
         self.radius = radius   # in meters

Do we want to support this?
