Unless there is some compelling failure, danger or performance problem
being caused by this not adhering to the best possible pattern, this
should not be changed. There are numerous projects depending on this
library, changing things for the sake of "tightness" would cause
unnecessary pain.

By the way, I seem to have missed your patch for this. did it get eaten ?

Greetings. 
  
I noticed that there are a number of enumerations in the javahl Java
code. For example, look at NodeKind. I wonder if these could be
converted to typesafe enum pattern [1][2] It shouldn't be that big of
a deal I would think and would make the interface much tighter and
typesafe.
