       \brief Return true if e2 is an instance of e1.
       In case of success (result is true), it will store the substitution that makes e1 equals to e2 into s.
       For example:
       1) e1 = f(g(x), x), e2 = f(g(h(a)), h(a))
       The result is true, and s will contain x -> h(a)

       2) e1 = f(a, x)     e2 = f(x, a)
       The result is false.

       3) e1 = f(x, x)     e2 = f(y, a)
       The result is false

       4) e1 = f(x, y)     e2 = f(h(z), a)
       The result is true, and s contains x->h(z) and y->a
    bool operator()(expr * e1, expr * e2, substitution & s);
