            Bug ID: 158254
           Summary: Bindings generator: Improve support for sharing enums
                    between idl files
    Classification: Unclassified
           Product: WebKit
           Version: WebKit Nightly Build
          Hardware: Unspecified
                OS: Unspecified
            Status: NEW
          Severity: Normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: Bindings

This can be done in two steps:

1. Define the enum in each idl file, but support sharing the underlying C++ enum. This does not currently work due to duplication of generated enum conversion functions.

2. Allow "importing" an idl enum in an other idl file. This would probably require some work, but would minimize the need for mirrored enums that needs to be synced.

Example where this could be useful:


    [StrictTypeChecking, RaisesException] RTCRtpTransceiver addTransceiver(MediaStreamTrack track, optional RTCRtpTransceiverInit init);
    [StrictTypeChecking, RaisesException] RTCRtpTransceiver addTransceiver(DOMString kind, optional RTCRtpTransceiverInit init);

    enum RTCRtpTransceiverDirection { "sendrecv", "sendonly", "recvonly", "inactive" };

    dictionary RTCRtpTransceiverInit {
        RTCRtpTransceiverDirection direction = "sendrecv";


    readonly attribute RTCRtpTransceiverDirection direction;
    void setDirection(RTCRtpTransceiverDirection direction);

    enum RTCRtpTransceiverDirection { "sendrecv", "sendonly", "recvonly", "inactive" };
