There's been a tendency for packages using the enumerator package
to suffix their name with -enumerator. In this case, I wouldn't have
bothered, but I frankly couldn't think of a better name for it. I'd
considered https (like the HTTP package, but has SSL support), but I
thought that would be too confusing.
If you have a recommendation, I'd consider renaming.
