Well, I don't know what broke tricky_is_enum_test, but it was working
on several compilers for me when I checked it in... and your link
seems to show it working on intel-7.1.

For me it passes vc7, vc7.1, cwpro8, intel5, intel6, intel7, intel8,
and borland. I don't think it ever passed on GCC.

On list is fine, but it usually helps to write separate messages for
separate libraries, with subject lines including the lib name. I
know, it's a pain...
