Why would you want that?  I remind you that this descends from Enum, so 
its members won't be directly interchangeable with ints. Presumably you 
want a bitfield enum, and those should descend from IntEnum.

TBH I'd prefer the AutoNumberEnum *not* have this feature; it's already 
a little too magical for my tastes.
