How about replacing <| with ->

The first time I saw the "<|" symbol I found it frightening and thought
that developpers would find it frightening too.
But it is easy to get used to it if we just think about the visual
representation and it looks more friendly than other proposals along
I don't like a lot "->", it can look more friendly at first step, but
can be confusing with other languages's use (makes me think to damn php
So I prefer "<|"

I don't really think of this op as a function composition but regardless, it's definitely a non-commutative binary operation -- there are two arguments and the order matters a great deal. We just have to decide what order. But yeah, it's pretty arbitrary, and both prior art and intuition seem a bit muddy :-/
> One reason that I prefer<| is that I find it easy to think about it as a close approximation to an atomic symbol such as ◁ (U+35c1). I don't perceive the< and | as individual elements and hence I don't have any cognitive dissonance about its meaning. I find this less so with +< which places + in a more distinctive position which leads me to think about mean of + in this new context. I have a similar, but slightly less negative reaction to<~ simply because the ~ is much more visually distinct than | . I admit that this distinction between<| and<~ or +< seems pretty arbitrary, but at least for me, I think it has an actual perceptual basis.
