Feature Request

Is your feature request related to a problem? Please describe.

For now TypeScript will transform enum from

enum Test {
    Key = 1


var Test;
(function (Test) {
    Test[Test["Key"] = 1] = "Key";
})(Test || (Test = {}));

This result is not friendly for uglyify or tree-shaking.
When Test is not be used, the generated code block always remain as dead codes.

Describe the solution you'd like

prefer to generate codes below:

var Test = /*#__PURE__*/(function () {
    var e = {}
    e[e["Key"] = 1] = "Key";
    return e


The suggestion version will be removed.
