reflect/protoreflect: drop the ProtoEnum type

Drop the protoreflect.ProtoEnum type (containing a single method
returning a protoreflect.Enum) and make generated enum types
directly implement protoreflect.Enum instead.

Messages have a two-level type split (ProtoMessage and Message) to
minimize conflicts between reflection methods and field names. Enums
need no such split, since enums do not have fields and therefore have
no source of conflicts.

Next Generation Go Protocol Buffers

WARNING: This repository is in active development. There are no guarantees about API stability. Breaking changes will occur until a stable release is made and announced.

This repository is for the development of the next major Go implementation of protocol buffers. This library makes breaking API changes relative to the existing Go protobuf library. Of particular note, this API aims to make protobuf reflection a first-class feature of the API and implements the protobuf ecosystem in terms of reflection.
