support docstrings in enum:_:value() #1160

This PR fixes #1136 by adding an optional docstring for each value of an enumeration so that they can be documented in a way that is analogous to classes, methods, properties, etc.

I'm not 100% happy happy with the change because it ends up adding even more code that is instantiated for each enumeration. A longer-term change that would be nice to do is to refactor enumeration so that there is a top-level class enum_base class (analogous to pybind11_object) which contains genereric versions of all methods and thin wrappers that are instantiated for each concrete enumeration.

LGTM. I agree that enums could use an overhaul, but this seems a reasonable short-term solution.
