Yes, is_enum doesn't need is_class. It was just the case in my
implementation at the time I started because I finished is_class first
and is_enum was then very easy to implement based on is_class - I just
forgot to look for a direct way to do is_enum. Meanwhile I know that
there are much better ways, but the above was just to explain how I took
the wrong direction.
