 about this output from mcs, it is conceivable that future versions might be 
 more strict about these declarations, so it seems reasonable to fix this 
 problem. And, of course, there is the issue that it's best to match csc's output 
 where possible. 
+------- Additional Comments From lupus@ximian.com  2003-01-12 07:15 -------
+From Partition II, 13.3:
+For binding purposes (e.g. for locating a method definition from the
+method reference used to call it) enums 
+shall be distinct from their underlying type.  
+For all other purposes, including verification and execution of 
+code, an unboxed enum freely interconverts with its underlying type.
+The value for the static field is an unboxed enum type.
+Jeroen Frijters agrees to this interpretation, too.
+The point is doubly moot since mcs now produces the same output as csc.
