I see the issue of whether it's a built-in or part of the standard library
as being a detail. My personal opinion is that they're important enough to
be built in, but having to write "import enum" (or whatever) won't kill me.
If making it a builtin becomes a point of contention, drop it and
concentrate on the more key issues of how enums will behave.
