You can make the enum type not an integer type. ``` struct Int{int i;} enum E: Int { first = Int(0), second = Int(1), } ```

Thanks. Are there any plans on deprecating implicit conversions of enums to integers?

Not that I know of. Given the precedence of this: https://github.com/dlang/DIPs/blob/master/DIPs/rejected/DIP1015.md I doubt enum/integer-types are going to get stricter. Is there a particular bug you encountered because of this conversion?
