That is unfortunate. Is there not a way to get the proper type?

In the json file I have

       "deco" : "HE14test13AADFCQBj6SZv",
       "originalType" : "X[][A]",

Here A is the enum, it clearly knows it in the json... I wonder 
if that could be used to realize that the int can be converted to 
an A?

Visual D could simply try to convert any values to A and use the 
name if it passes, else fallback to the int.

Any ETA on it?
