Generated Ruby enums have no good way to get the names back out once you have a number.

      Description

      Thrift enums are compiled into Ruby modules as Ruby has no native enum type. This works well except that without maintaining a separate map somewhere else or using reflection, it is impossible to get the names of the values back out from the values themselves. Essentially with this setup:

      module MyModule
      DATAPOINT = 1
      OTHERDATA = 2
      end

      If I have 2, it is very difficult to get "OTHERDATA" back out. It would be easier if thrift generated a static map from constant value to constant name. I am going to try and work on a patch for this.
