The MySQL treatment of enums is generally quite reprehensible. The 
proposed patch by contrast fits quite well into our existing type 
system, I think. MySQL users migrating will have a bit of work to do.

I don't think their experience has much to teach us (except how not to 
do enums). We should decide on case sensitivity without having reference 
to it.
