Calling `dir` on an enum subclass shows only the contents of that class, not its parent classes. In normal classes, you can do this: 

    Python 3.4.0 (v3.4.0:04f714765c13, Mar 16 2014, 19:25:23) [MSC v.1600 64 bit (AMD64)] on win32
    Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.
    >>> class A:
    ...   x = lambda self: 7
    >>> class B(a): pass
    >>> assert 'x' in dir(B)

But in enum subclasses, it fails:
    >>> import enum
    >>> class A(enum.Enum):
    ...   x = lambda self: 7
    >>> class B(A):
    ...   pass
    >>> assert 'x' in dir(B)
    Traceback (most recent call last):
      File "<stdin>", line 1, in <module>

Looks like the `__dir__` implementation needs to be tweaked.
