The second argument to BOOST_PROTO_DEFINE_OPERATORS is a domain. When
defining a domain you (usually) specify a generator with an expression
wrapper. What are you using for a domain, and how do you define it?

When I want an end-user-friendly terminal type, I derive it from the
expression wrapper class, like this:

  template<class Expr> struct my_wrapper;

  struct my_domain : domain< generator<my_wrapper> > {};

  template<class Expr> struct my_wrapper
   : extends< Expr, my_wrapper<Expr>, my_domain > {

  class my_int : my_wrapper< terminal<int>::type > {

Sounds like pod-ness is important to you, so this scheme won't work. Is
that the problem you're having?
