Output is 'member' instead of 'printThis'.

At best this is an enhancement request. But you are asking to add to make a
special case for string enums.

I think this is by design.

The EnumBaseType just indicates that the enum values can be implicitly
converted to the EnumBaseType. It's not the same as `enum string member =
"printThis";`

I'm not a fan of special casing the output of string enums.

Maybe I was too fast with this, I just expected a different result.

With anonymous enums it works btw.

enum name1 = "printThis";
enum
{
    name2 = "foo",
    name3 = "bar",
}

void main()
{
    import std.stdio : writeln;
    writeln(name1, name2, name3);
}
