> The ENUM case in validate is missing a null check for datum:
> {code}
>     case ENUM:
>       return schema.getEnumSymbols().contains(datum.toString());
> {code}
> This leads to a surprising error where a NPE is thrown for a union of enum and null when
the enum is first in the union.  If null is first it works.  The fix is a simple.  I'm creating
a patch that adds the fix and a unit test for this case.
