[Python-Dev] Documenting enum types

IMO we should not document enum types because Python implementations other
than CPython may want to implement them differently (ex: not all Python
implementations have an enum module currently). By experience, exposing too
many things in the public API becomes a problem later when you want to
modify the code.
