Re: Defining custom GEnum subclasses

Actually I put in a patch to dynamically register GEnum types for
enums in the gir while don't have a GType. Turns out that this wasn't
needed. I implemented it for GStreamer, but is a gstreamer bug which
prevented the gi scanner from getting the right GType.

But I found that it was possible to dynamically call g_register_enum()
with a dynamically allocated struct, and use that to construct a
PyGEnum class.

It would be possible to expose this with a Python api. If we wanted to.
