Comments - ENUM - still broken?

Define "broken."

I have used ENUM in both MySQL and MariaDB, and have noticed no brokenness. But perhaps I just didn't hit your particular test case.

Unfortunately I don't know what "broken" means in this case, apart from "doesn't work as expected". All I know, really, is that years ago someone asked when it would be fixed, and someone from the project said not any time soon.

But if you've had good luck with it then I'll go ahead with fingers crossed. Have you used large sequences? Mine won't push the 2-byte limit, but some will hit 50 or so.

I hope I don't find that they're more trouble than they're worth :-)
