Is enum iteration order guaranteed?

The docs say that enums can be iterated over, but it isn't clear to me whether
they are iterated over in definition order or value order.
If I have:
GROUCHO = 999
CHICO = 5
HARPO = 11
ZEPPO = auto()
GUMMO = -1
GROUCHO, CHICO, HARPO, ZEPPO, GUMMO = list(MarxBros)
is that guaranteed to do the right thing?
i.e. GROUCHO is MarxBros.GROUCHO, and similarly for the other members.
On that related note, how would people feel about a method that injects enums
into the given namespace?
from MarxBros import *
would be more familiar syntax :-)
