I noted the "a" before enum :-)

Is the implication that this form (a sort of combined namedtuple/enum) *isn't* possible with the stdlib enum? But rather that it's specific to your aenum module? I don't see any documentation for the "init" parameter in either version, so I'm a little puzzled.

The capability seems neat, although (as is probably obvious) the way you declare it seems a little confusing to me.
