The idea behind the 'IOptionApplicability.isOptionEnabled()' method is
to allow an option to be disabled(or enabled) based on the value(s) of
other options, and it is called everytime any option within the same
property page is changed (including the option itselve).

This means the 'IOption option' parameter you get passed in 'isEnabled()'
does not specify that that option has changed, but only that some option on
the same page has changed. So the trick and difficulty is to detect that
your specific enum option has changed value and only then popup the

As it seems Mikhails 'valueHandler' solution might be more appropriate to
tackle your problem.
