class Foo
{
    enum Boo
    {
        X
    }
}

pragma(msg, Foo.Boo.stringof);

prints:

Boo

I can't use it for meta-programming purposes, as it does not specifies the
type. At the very least it should return "Foo.Boo".

Use fullyQualifiedName from Phobos:

module test;
import std.traits;

class Foo
{
    enum Boo
    {
        X
    }
}

pragma(msg, fullyQualifiedName!(Foo.Boo));  // => test.Foo.Boo

.stringof is unreliable at best, *especially* for metaprogramming.
