Currently I did only tests on GNU/Linux, where it requires editing
the Makefile to get the right path to GiNaC source.

Most certainly. I was not aware that I could use op(). Anyway,
I believe that source code using the members names is much more readable
than with op(). Why did you decide not to declare these members public?
Well, maybe the main problem is that it seems impossible to declare
a member accessible read-only in C++.
