The following code worked in 3.8.5 but does not in 3.8.6 due to the fix for #39587:

import enum

class MyInt(int):
    def __new__(cls, value):
        return super().__new__(cls, value)

class HexMixin:
    def __repr__(self):
        return hex(self)

class MyIntEnum(HexMixin, MyInt, enum.Enum):

class Foo(MyIntEnum):
    TEST = 1

assert isinstance(Foo.TEST, MyInt)
assert repr(Foo.TEST) == "0x1"

In 3.8.6, the `Foo` enum itself fails to be created because `HexMixin` is now considered the member type instead of `MyInt`:

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "", line 18, in <module>
    class Foo(MyIntEnum):
  File "/usr/local/Cellar/python@3.8/3.8.6/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/3.8/lib/python3.8/", line 215, in __new__
    enum_member = __new__(enum_class)
TypeError: object.__new__(Foo) is not safe, use int.__new__()
