It wouldn't work anyway because pod_generator expects that it's
argument's template parameter is a Proto expression. my_complex's
template argument is (presumably) a scalar. Generators are for wrapping
bare expressions in custom wrappers. my_complex is already a wrapped
Proto expression.

If I had a better idea of what you were trying to do, I could help.
