Extend Enum
Hello everybody.
I'd like to know if there's a way, to extend an Enum, based on 
version().
I have an Enum, that holds various values, but some are 
different, in other versions. So the alternative would be to 
define the Enum several times.

Is there a better way to do this? Maybe a class with static 
consts...? How should I do it?

If it makes sense, you can use version(x) blocks within the single enum 
definition, as opposed to putting version(x) outside. Alternatively, it 
may make sense to define the enum value(s) outside to keep the 
definition of 'example' relatively clean:

    version(x) {
        enum BAR_VALUE = 2;

    } else {
        enum BAR_VALUE = 3;
    }

    enum example
    {
        FOO = 1,
        BAR = BAR_VALUE,
    }

Could you give me an example, what that would look like? So far I 
couldn't find a way to use version inside an Enum.

Me neither. Sorry for the noise. :(
