The tkinter.EventType enum was introduced in issue27294. It implements __str__ as returning the name for the sole purpose of using in Event.__repr__(). But overriding __str__ in the str subclass may be not good idea, because different code will get different string representation, depending on whether it calls str() explicitly or implicitly (Python code) or read the content of the str object directly using C API (C code).

The following code sets EventType.__str__ = str.__str__, so both method will get the same value. Instead Event.__repr__() was changed to use the name of the enum member directly.
