[Archivesspace_Users_Group] Creating enumeration values via API

Hi Alexander,

We had a script that did just that using the update enumeration endpoint
(POST /config/enumerations/:enum_id) by first getting the enumeration's
JSON object, adding new enumeration values to the enumeration's "values"
array, and posting the updated JSON (see example gist
<https://gist.github.com/djpillen/4dd8f3b2e4672a1874c8ac8c646037db>). This
handles the creation of new enumeration_values; they do not need to be
created separately.
