Yes, great point! I think this is a sign it’s better to just have one way with an enum, so there’s no deciding on which method to use, or reluctance to switch away from ad hoc enums because they felt nicer initially. And enums aren’t that much to write.

With the addition of a macro system in future Swift you could probably create your own ad hoc enums, and that would be perfect for something like a playground.
