I needed something like this to implement a "group(expr1, ... , exprN)
function that would group several expressions into one. I also hit the
max arity limit with that solution, so I changed the syntax to "group
<< (expr1, ..., expr2)". Using the overloaded comma operator from
proto, this becomes a binary tree that can be as large as you want,
and can easily be converted to a list using flatten. Probably useless
for phoenix, but I thought I'd mention it anyhow :) I would also be
interested to go back to the group(...) syntax without needing to
modify the limits, so any progress on this would be great.
