[BUGFIX] Reclaiming the memory allocated for static objects *is* necessary.

GiNaC allocates memory for static objects (i.e. flyweights, remember tables,
etc), but doesn't free it. This is OK if the program lifetime matches libginac
lifetime, since the OS will reclaim that memory anyway.
However, if the program lifetime is different from that of libginac, this
turns into a memory leak. This happens if someone dlopen's, and
dlclose's it later on (read: if someone uses GiNaC via scripting language

function::registered_functions(): likewise.

Subject: [PATCH] Faster, better (recursive descent) expression parser.

bison generated parser has a number of problems:

1. Bad performance. Parsing a sum seems to be O(N^{2 + a}) (a > 0) [1].
   For example, parsing a sum (actually, a univariate polynomial) of 32768
   terms takes about 90 sec. on my box, parsing a sum of 10^6 terms takes
2. The user is expected to provide list of all symbols in the expression.
   Often this is very annoying (and useless).
3. Parser is not reentrant (bison *can* produce reentrant parsers, but that
   won't solve other problems).
4. Parser is difficult to extend.

Hence the new parser.


1. Parsing large sums and products is O(N).
2. Parser is reentrant (well, almost).
3. It's possible to insert (shell style) comments inside the expressions.
4. matrices, lists, FAIL are NOT handled. Yes, this *is* a feature :-)


1. Error handling is a bit terse: on error exception is thrown, and that's it.
2. Binary, octal, and hexadecimal numbers can not be parsed (yet).
3. Tensors, noncommutative products, etc. can not be parsed.

Other notes:

1. ex ctor still uses the old parser.
2. ginsh still uses the old parser.

Using GiNaC::numeric for numerical computations incurs significant
overhead, so one might want to do these computations using proper CLN
types. Unfortunately, it's not easy due to automatic conversion from
cln::cl_N to GiNaC::numeric. Here is a simple example:

cl_N x, y;
// initialize them
return sin(x) +  y*exp(y);

The compiler complains about ambigously overloaded of functions, i.e.
cl_N cln::sin(const cl_N&) versus numeric GiNaC::sin(const numeric&).

Hence, I propose to disable *implicit* conversion from cl_N to numeric
(this can be done by marking the numeric ctor as `explicit').

However, this change happens to be a bit nontrivial, because that evil
conversion is used in GiNaC itself. So, I decided to rewrite those fragments
of code.
