Yes, this was in my plans. For the moment,  however, this is just version 0.1,
I want to wait a bit before releasing an official release.

Honestly, I don't care, since "eval" happens only once at decoration time.
There is no "eval" overhead at calling time, so I do not expect to have
problems. I am waiting for volunteers to perform profiling and
performance analysis ;)
