I disagree. Actually the fact (that this enum incompatibility had not
long been pointed out by MS users to MS) means that it scarcely
matters on users. Then there is almost no reason to change our API
as silly as MS.NET.

Or if you have concrete problem around there, it would be nice
if you post it to bugzilla.
