Add support for annotation scanning of Java enums

                 Key: CDI-127
                 URL: https://issues.jboss.org/browse/CDI-127
             Project: CDI Specification Issues
          Issue Type: Feature Request
            Reporter: Brian Leathem

It would be useful if Java enums were included in the CDI annotation scan.

A use case for this is found in the Seam Faces project, where we would like to use annotations on enums for configuration purposes.  The annotation would look like:

public enum Pages {

It is my understanding that the current CDI specification (1.0) does not require scanning of the enum and will not pick up the @ViewConfig annotation.
