I think a better idea is to let the user evolve their expression by making
changes to it and record the changes that they made, not so that the
computer can redo them but so that the user can easily see what they did.

This is a different challenge, but I think the result would be more useful.
I haven't seen WRI's Wiz thing (for kids) but I expect it does something
not too dissimilar, although the derivations may be computer generated and
not manually controlled.
