+Summary: char not valid as enum type
+Description of Problem:
+The Mono C# compiler does not accept char constants as enum member

+Steps to reproduce the problem:
+public enum TestEnum
+    MyA = 'A',
+    MyB = 'B',
+    MyC = 'C'
+Actual Results:
+CharEnum.cs(7) error CS1008: Type byte, sbyte, short, ushort, int, uint,
+long, or ulong expected (have: CharLiteral ("A"))
+Expected Results:
+No errors.
+How often does this happen? 
+Additional Information:
+Tested with Mono C# compiler version
