Would be nice if that worked. Seems like something we should fix

I'm actually not quite sure to which degree enums are supported by
bifcl right now. Two things you could try: (1) do they work if they
don't have namespace?; and (2) does it work to say just ":enum"
(probably not).

The alternative would be to use "any" and check for the type's
correctness dynamically inside the function body until we have fixed

(The other work-around is using strings, as I think you said you are
alrady doing now) .
