Due to dynamic typing EnumSet actually is not needed in Python. You can use sets, tuples or lists for combining enums in new API. IntFlags is needed for old API that already uses ints. I think introducing non-int Flags is overengineering, can't imagine somebody will use it in new code.

There is no much time left before feature freeze. If general IntFlags will not added, I'm going to open separate issues for adding specialized class for every particular case (re, os, etc).
