To be honest I agree with what he's saying. We're bending enums to do 
things normal people just wouldn't (and shouldn't) do.

And seriously, "Delphi, Delphi, Delphi!" .. why don't we strive for 
something a little better and make the people porting from Delphi bend a 
little this way than us their way.
