Nope, sorry.


A type specifier of the form
       enum identifier
without an enumerator list shall only appear after the type it
specifies is complete.

drow@caradoc:~% gcc -c q.c -Wall -std=c99 -pedantic
q.c:1: warning: ISO C forbids forward references to `enum' types

If we use it elsewhere, we should stop.
