Well, in that usage (ie, for enum I/O functions) it's not actually
necessary that the type system as a whole understand ANYENUM as
"something that any enum type can be cast to", because you're going to
hot-wire the pg_type entries during CREATE ENUM anyway.  What I'm
wondering is if there's a use-case for it during ordinary user
operations with enums.
