This won't work, will it?  A more complex example:


is not fully expandable, but if you get the test working should give
\c_true.  So I think this might not be a good idea.  (I assume that this
test is supposed to see if something is a macro.  I do that in siunitx,
but using \meaning and looking for "macro".)
