#ifndef _UNIFIER_H_

   \brief Functor for unifying expressions.
   It implements a quasi-linear unification algorithm.

   It has support for two different variable banks: left and right.
   That is, variable i in left bank is considered different from
   variable i in the right bank.  This feature allows us to avoid
   unnecessary variable renaming.

       \brief Unify the given expressions. Return true if succeeded,
       and store the result in the given substitution.
       If use_offsets is true, then the variables in the given expressions are assumed to be 
       in different banks.
