It doesn't quite work because it seems deep_copy doesn't (seem to) use
generate for wrapping up expression, with the result that the type of
the object returned by deep_copy is deeply different from the type
sent in.

But this is not the reason I didn't use it, more simply, I forgot
about it.

Question: once deep_copy is fixed (or you show me how to use it in my context),
would it be usable for initializing a static member variable?
