The anon enumeration trick has been an established C++ idom for years
(ISTR, but cannot check now, even Stroustrup himself advocating it).
It's a shame if it now suddenly stopped working and is somehow against
the standard, even.

The problem with #defines is that they're outside the language proper
and, for example, pay no attention to namespaces.
