You're right, my bad memory.  Normally I have something like:

class MyClass {
  enum Color {
    Brown, Red, ...

...And in this case I was thinking of what amounts to MyClass::Brown, not
Color::Brown.  But my brain elided the class out and said "no, no, you can
use enum names as scopes!"  Bad brain.  No biscuit.
