> It would be great if we could have GenericEnumSymbol implementing Comparable (either
using int or String rep).
> This is mainly because GenericEnumSymbol is trying to mimic the java.lang.Enum and enums
are inherently comparable that's why java.lang.Enum is Comparable. 
> Sorting Enum and GenericEnumSymbol is an action that we perform a lot. Making it Comparable
frees us from explicit type checking and improves general code clarity and performance.
