I have developed a class that tries to mimic java like enums as much as possible 
(only the simple ones, see provided urls for the example). The only difficulty I 
got is that it's still possible to overwrite the static variables which makes the 
enum quite insecure.
As I would like to keep it as much as it's like in java I would like to request 
for a reflection method to make properties final (at least for the static ones) 
like ReflectionProperty->setFinal().

Test script:
Enum class:

Ah ok, but this request is not only restricted to enums. It could also be used in 
constructors to fill properties (especially with objects) and make them final 
afterwards so they can't be changed just like in java.
Of what I've read on the rfc is that it seems like those enums won't behave like 
objects while my implementation provides methods (sorry for the bad english).
