I think D enums are mostly meant for enumerations, of things like ints, ushorts, chars, etc. (But enhancement requests are possible). Also is that "package:" actually working? Bye, bearophile

That's incorrect. TDPL specifically talks about using structs as the type of an enum. However, there are bugs with it which make it so that it doesn't really work at the moment. Among them are: http://d.puremagic.com/issues/show_bug.cgi?id=4423 http://d.puremagic.com/issues/show_bug.cgi?id=5460 If you see any bugs with regards to structs not working as enum values, please report them if you can't find them in bugzilla. - Jonathan M Davis
