Thank you.

Yes, I am interested in exploring the value & use cases of manipulating/
optimizing trees in the longer term for LP in C++. And definitely
Proto is high on my short list of places to steal/reuse from. For the first
Boost version, there are some more fundamental things on my list that I
need to be researched before pursuing this. But it would certainly be cool
if this ability proves to be valuable for LP and also makes it into the
version of Castor.

Your heads-up on potential feedback is motivating me a bit to document
a few of the implementation alternatives to enable feedback that will
help converge upon the final implementation strategy.
