Doable, but not easy. The problem you'll have is that all Proto
expression types have a nested fusion_tag that is a typedef for
proto::tag::proto_expr. That is how Fusion figures out how to iterate
over Proto expressions. You'll need to define your own tag, use
proto::extends (not BOOST_PROTO_EXTENDS) to define an expression
extension, and hide the fusion_tag typedef in the base with your own.
Then you'll need to implement the necessary Fusion hooks for your custom
Fusion tag type.
