Interesting article about the origins of life

it is probably me but the dict-interface of the python enum-class strikes me extremely odd consider the following test-code:

==================================
enum_question$ cat enum_test.py 
# file: enum_test
from _future_ import print_function
import enum

class Foo(enum.Enum):
    BAR = 1
    BAZ = 1

print('get BAR:', Foo['BAR'])
print('get BAZ:', Foo['BAZ'])
==================================

guess what, one finds on the terminal:

==================================
enum_question$ python3 enum_test.py 
get BAR: Foo.BAR
get BAZ: Foo.BAR
==================================

in plain english: ask for 'BAZ' and you shall be given 'BAR' !! :-o

OK, they have the same value, but still; it is kind of unexpected; again at least if you think like me;
