The only part you need to update is, if you add VAL4, you need to
change "range(3)" to "range(4)". But here's a C enum thing that I
don't know how to do in Python.
first_guy, /* probably will be assigned to zero */
second_guy, /* probably will be assigned to one */
third_guy_special_value = 314159,
fourth_guy /* probably will be assigned to 314160 */
}; /* in any event, uniqueness is guaranteed for all values */
I suppose you could do something like this:
(VAL1, VAL2, VAL3, VAL4) = range(4)
VAL3 = 314159
but there's no longer a guarantee of uniqueness, which is usually
the point of an enum.

Resistance is futile. Capacitance is efficacious.
