Any plan for mapped enum values?

This mans that for an Enum "Sex" with elements "Male" and "Female" I could have "M" and "F" in a char field.

This is a very used pattern in legacy databases - and we use it to this day. We do not write out the enum name. We use mapped values. Right now this means no support for Entity Framework Enums... lots of hand coded stuff.

@NetTecture This is something we hope to be able to do as part of flexible o/c mapping, which is tracked by this item: http://entityframework.codeplex.com/workitem/93 However it is unlikely that this will make it into the EF6 schedule.

Thanks,
