Can you say more about how your change despaghettifies the code?  I
can see that it makes eval.c shorter - but what else?

Do these need to be .i.c - i.e. implying that they need to be
#included?  Can't they be normal .c files?

I assume the memoizer and the unmemoizer for a particular kind of
expression need to be consistent with each other - is that right?  If
so, it seems to me that putting them in separate files might increase
the likelihood of future mistakes.
