It seems that strip_prefix is used about 45 times. That's often
enough to be catered to.
1) a "prefix" field into struct enum names
2) add new functions "enum_showb_short" and "enum_name_short" that
suppress the prefix found in struct enum names
Don't bother with a version of enum_show: let's not make
another function with confusing storage for the result
3) we could add a shortbitnames function. That would take an extra
argument, prefix-to-be-suppressed. (There is no descriptor struct
to contain the prefix. I guess we could add one.)
Is that reasonable?
