I would be in favour of a new intrinsic.
I have to admit that for some usages I would prefer a compiler intrinsic
that returns False instead of raising an exception. Something like:
function TryIntToEnum<T: type of enum>(const AValue: Integer; var
AEnumValue: T): Boolean;
Please, don't use this ridiculous generics syntax.
If it is a compiler intrinsic, then
function TryIntToEnum(T: atype; const AValue: Integer; var AEnumValue: aType):
will work, just like typeinfo() or sizeof() works.
