 IF it does away with implicit conversion to int then I am all for it

Subject: [boost] [BENUM] Any interest in auto-generated
enum-to/from-stringfunctions, without longer/more-complex usage?

Anyone think this functionality belongs in boost? (I have working code)

ENUM(X, B = N, C, D = B + C }; // or whatever X x1 = C; cout << x1 <<
'\n'; // outputs "C\n"
X x2("D"); // construct from string...
if (x2 == D) { will do }
