Now, what to call the traveral/algorithm/action/on thingy. None of those
feel right. Maybe if I describe in words what it does, someone can come
up with a good name. Given a Proto grammar that has been built with

it creates a Proto algorithm. The traversal is fixed, the actions can
float. It's called<insert good name here>.


   std::cout<<  actor<char_terminal, my_actions>()(a)<<  "\n"; //
printing char


Like "visitor", "actor" comes with lots of baggage that we don't want:


Besides, as these things define algorithms, a name that's a verb would
be better (std::transform, std::accumulate, etc. are verbs).

That's a totally different synonym. The actor that I meant is
connected to the meaning of "semantic action" and you are using
action/actions anyway (as well as grammars and rules). It's the
same domain.

How about "evaluate":

   proto::evaluate<char_terminal, my_actions>()(a);

Hmmm... :P
