That doesn't matter. If Variable is a proto expression type, x-y will
create a proto expression tree.

Sorry, I don't understand.

evaluate(Expr const &expr)
proto::default_context const ctx;
return proto::eval(expr, ctx);
You can do this:
proto::literal<int> x(12), y(4);
int z = evaluate(x - y);
And it should display "8". Substitute your own context type in
"evaluate()" and you can make it do anything you want.
