Immutable means "cannot be changed".  So I mean that the "Value" class
should not have a "set" method and all "get" methods should be const.  E.g.

class Value {
  T v;

  Value(const T& _v) : v(_v) { }

  const T& get() { return v; }

  // type conversion operator, so you can write
  // Value<int> a(5);
  // int b = a;
  const T& operator T () { return v; }
