Fixed indeed.

Given a proto expression X, it builds a
table_expr< typename proto::tag_of<X>::type, X>

basically I add the tag of the expression in the expression wrapper
type. Sounds silly but later, we need to know if a given expression
is of tag A or B and doing so cut a lot of compile time compared to
calling tag_of each time. It also allow us to overload table_expr
behavior based on tag without relying on the internal type of proto
expression, making it easy for developper to add such special behavior
on some non-trivial expression node.
