What about defining your own function then. For instance,

In that case you would only need to change the word "pow" in the output
of your parser into "my_pow". After that you could use the constructor
that makes an ex from a string and then you could get a real power
object again by
doing .subs(my_pow(wild(0),wild(1))==power(wild(0),wild(1)).
