Well. the intention was to not obscure but ease the process of adding new
expressions. Your hint has been noted, i will explain what this macro does
with an example.

The process is simple:
1) Define the expression, this means:
    1.1) Define how the proto expression will look like
    1.2) Define what expressions will match
    1.3) Hook the expression up in the Actions mechanism
   This is done by the macro. Cause the code for that will look almost the same
2) Define what's to be done in the default_actions (usually call some
other functor with
    the expressions children)
3) Write a generation function.

Please have a look at:
