Just to add to Paul's reply, no, this isn't going to work, as you've
discovered, due to your attempt to expand SEQ_FOR_EACH_R within an
expansion of SEQ_FOR_EACH_R. I ran into this inconvenience at some point,
too, and simply wrote up a script to define a collection of macros similar
to SEQ_FOR_EACH and SEQ_TRANSFORM that were reentrant (so they used
token-pasting with an pp integral constant). It's fun exercise, but if
you're not into writing it yourself, I'd be happy to point you to the code.
