Well, In fact I changed my mind, as the enum must be a member of 
Collection class, but required to be used in the create job and nested 
enums cannot be forward declared. So that'll require to move the enum 
outside of the Collection class, leading to even uglier code. So I'll 
stay with the boolean, wich also corresponds to the dbus 
interfaces spec, btw.
