I don't believe that the standard allows for an implementation of
enums as unsigned integers - after all, individual enum literals can
be given corresponding negative integer values.

This warning is only seen because the first enum literal in the enum
is explicitly given the value 0, thus precluding the possibility of
the value being < 0, barring some abuse of the enum.
