Just to let everyone know (meeting notes, coming soon, will make this 
clear), we agreed not to do generator arrows. Too much trouble of the 
kind identified here, also some future-hostility to function! wanting 
=>! (remember ! is a unary prefix operator). Other spellings all have 
ASI or other future-hostility woes.

Sorry, Brandon. Worth a try, but no go.
