In Derelict, I exclusively used anonymous enums with an alias to 
the base type like Guillaume noted above. When I did bindbc-sdl, 
I decided to go with named enums + the template I pasted 
above---I put the mixin at the bottom of each enum declaration. 
Though I do use anonymous enums now for any that are intended to 
be used as bit flags.

The mixin approach allows you to keep the stronger typing of 
named enums and still maintain one-to-one compatibility with the 
with the C source if both are important to you. I'm ambivalent 
about it now.
