Another possibility: I've used "f ** g" for function composition of "f"
and "g"

in some of my code. It seems quite intuitive to me, a sort of

operation in the "monoid" of functions. Maybe people accustomed to using

"**" for the power function will find it weird, though.

After reading all your posts and all previous posts I could find, I've
started using (<--) and (-->), but I also wish there was an agreed upon
notation for this. I have no confidence that my choices are good.
