Bug Description

I got this error when running lp:lazr.enum

>>> from enum import Item
>>> Item('a') == Item('b')
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<stdin>", line 1, in <module>
  File "/tmp/TEST/lib/python2.6/site-packages/lazr.enum-1.1.2-py2.6.egg/lazr/enum/", line 167, in __eq__
    self.enum == other.enum)
AttributeError: 'Item' object has no attribute 'enum'

Items only test equal if they belong to the same EnumeratedType.

I guess we could either raise a different error saying that the Item isn't part of an enumerated type, or we could just always say that they are not equal. I'm not sure I necessarily agree with either.

__eq__ should not raise AttributeError if two things cannot be compared - TypeError is the exception to raise. (That or never be equal).
