It depends on wether we want the type of the value to be retained by 
QVariant. With the current behaviour the following...

QVariant(Qt.AlignmentFlag.AlignHCenter).value() is 
Qt.QAlignmentFlag.QAlignHCenter true.

If QVariant was changed to automatically convert an enum member to an 
int then that type information would be lost. I'm not sure how important 
that is???
